Although an automatic collimation system reduces the radiation field size to the dimensions of the image receptor, many pediatric patients are significantly smaller than the image receptor, resulting in the need for additional manual adjustment of collimation.
Conventional radiography using film as an image receptor will be obsolete and replaced by digital imaging.
As radiology departments move into the digital age, the cassette and screen-film combination often is replaced by an imaging plate held in an image receptor that is similar in appearance to a regular cassette.
In digital imaging, the cassette is replaced by an electronic detector system called the image receptor.

Though contrary to most radiographers' instincts, placing the object (ie, valve marker) farther from the image receptor magnifies the pressure indicator and makes the pressure interpretation easier.
