Ends image "burn-out" while reducing patient exposure. Lateral decubitus images normally obtained during double-contrast barium enema exams are often difficult to interpret because of the extreme differences in film densities. A high percentage of such images have been clinically unacceptable due to over-or under- penetration on one side of the patient. For example, overexposed decubitus views have been responsible for a high percentage of missed lesions, especially in the ascending colon.(7)
