Intresting question in itself, Since I don't know much about the medical end at all.

I would think that anything rated over 100Kv would be considered Industrial though, anything less than that and you'd have a hard time getting a shot on anything under .125" of Al .

The intresting part of me is that if you were to ask a medical tech how much they're about to hit you with they'd probably not be able to answer the question. Ask your dental assistant next time they shoot a shot of your mouth, they're going to look at you, then at their equipment and it'll say something like adult/canine or something along those lines.

Last time I grabbed their tube, stuck it to my dosimeter and had her shoot a shot, the answer 180mr. / per shot.

Either way, anything less than 3-5 ma and 100Kv doesnt' do me a bit of good in industrial settings.
