The design of current X-ray diagnostic equipment used in neonatology and pediatrics is discussed. The parameters and functional capacities of these devices are analyzed. The technical requirements on the design of X-ray iagnostic equipment for neonatology and pediatrics under nonspecialist and nonhospital conditions are identified. A set of neonatal adaptations for X-ray imaging of extremely low birth weight neonates is proposed.
