The LITTLE PRISM is fixed to the collimator in any position by means of self-adhesive Velcro®
(supplied). Its gradients are four times smaller at a 100-cm distance, due to magnification (see brochure).
Lateral decubitus films of D.C. enemas are improved when covering the upper 10 cm of a flaccid abdomen with the shadow of the LITTLE PRISM. The filter is also useful on chests having a wide base, to attenuate over-penetration of the apexes. Sometimes useful over the thinner part of some extremities.
