Muscular patients. Increased muscle mass can be compensated for by an increase in kVp of approximately 10 from the original optimum kVp settings. Pediatric patients. To ensure a proper exposure, younger patients must be appropriately immobilized. For the extremities, routine bilateral views for comparison are discouraged.
