Hi all,
Does anyone of you know the ways in which dose administered to a patient can be minimised while still obtaining a useful X-ray image ?

This is an extremely broad question. You'll get a more useful answer if you narrow your question and indicate your area of interest. Do you want to design better equipment? Have you just been diagnosed with cancer and are worried about exposure in upcoming tests? These are very different.

"Useful" for what specific purpose?

You can turn the dosage way down (for instance, by turning down the exposure time) so that your image resolution is pretty crappy, but if all you're looking for is a steel screw in a patient's stomach, you'll still find it.

The question isn't very clear.
