Two capacitor discharge X-ray units of different make were compared. The same radiological examinations were carried out with both units and the radiation exposure for every examination was measured on a Rando phantom with calibrated LiF-TLD Teflon discs. A large difference in radiation exposure for the same image quality was found between the two units. Factors such as the use of rare earth intensifying screens with capacitor discharge X-ray units, independent tube current settings and automatic charge replenishment are stressed.
