Re: leg bones

From:Gayle Callis

The correct answer! A little hint on viewing cartilage on each end of bones
(if this must be included in measurements).  Underexpose the bone slightly,
cartilage shows up better (xrays will not "burn" through so easily).  If
you can find a facility with a FAXITRON, you will have excellent results.
Rat bone will not need long exposure at 30 kVP.
