Abstract

A lightweight radiographic package is described for use in highly mobile operations, especially light units. Weight, volume, and power requirements of the current medical field x-ray machine create a situation in which radiographic support is impractical if not impossible in the early phase of high mobility medical operations. A method for immediate utilization of the dental field x-ray unit to overcome the limitations of the standard field x-ray machine (GX-111) is described.
