This section of the paleoimaging report should provide the technical variables or settings used for each radiograph produced. In this portion of the report, each radiograph is numbered sequentially with new subject lines interjected as the study material flows through the imaging workstation. Minimally, those data that need to be reported include exposure variables such as Source-to-image receptor distance (SID), kVp, mAs, and the focal spot size. Positioning variables should also be noted, such as anterior-posterior (AP), posterior-anterior (PA), lateral (L), oblique (Obl), as well as any additional projections required to collect the desired images, such as a Towne's projection to demonstrate cranial synostosis.
