XCP Instrument Scenario
A woman is scheduled for a full series of radiographs. The dental radiographer is using the XCP instruments for the series and is prepared to start the procedure. Upon placement of the XCP and film in the patient’s mouth, the patient appears to be very uncomfortable with the procedure and removes the XCP and film immediately, stating she is in pain.
