The type of generator power supplying the x-ray tube influences the production of the x-ray beam
- Single Phase
- 3-phase six pusle
- 3-phase twelve pulse
- High Frequency generators.
Whats the difference between them? How does increasing or decreasing generator efficiency affect beam intensity? ( primary signal intensity )
The difference between these generators is that everytime you use higher frequency generators such as going from single phase to 3 Phase/6 pulse generators, youre going from less efficient generators to more efficient generators.
When you move to mroe efficient generators you are able to produce more x-rays with the same technical factors.
Increasing generator efficiency will increase beam intensity.
Decreasing generator efficiecny will decrease beam intensity.
