If the film is too black, reduce kVp by increments of 15% until the exposed film is optimal. If the film is too light, increase kVp by increments of 15% until the goal is met. The chart can now be created by starting with the exposure factors for the initial film. The mA will be fixed at the value you selected. Write the thickness of the cat and the optimal kVp on the chart. Values of kVp for other thicknesses are calculated by adding (or subtracting) 2 kVp for each 1-cm increase (or decrease) in thickness.
