  1. What is the importance of spectral matching in selection of screen film combinations?
    Rare earth screens; it must match
  2. Amber filter

    • Shelf life - cool dry place
  5. Other name for fixer
    Hypo

  8. Brown film
    Fixer retention
  9. Physical qualities required for to be used as a intensifying screen base?
    Polyester plastic
  10. Typical radiograph intensifying screen
    Base,reflective layer,phosphor,base,contact felt, low z front , low z back
  11. Radiographic film contributes to latent image?
    Fewer than 1%
  12. Why are two screens placed in a radiographic cassette ?
    Reduce patient dose
  13. Name 5 phosphors
    Barium flurochloride, barium sulfate,zinc sulfide, calcium tungstate, lanthanum
  14. Quantum mottle
    Radiographic noise produce by the random interaction of x ray with intensifying screen
  15. Four exposure technique factor; how does each affect OD
    • Kvp - number of X-rays in image forms beam
    • mA - number of X-rays produced radiation quantity
    • Exposure time (s) minimize motion blur the can occur during patent motion.
    • SID - determines the intensity of X-ray beam at IR
  16. Components of total X-ray beam filtration
    Inherent,compensating, added filtration
  17. Why is it important to keep exposure time as short as possible
    Dosage minimize patient motion blur
  18. Large focal spot
    Sufficient mAs used to image thick or dense body parts, shorter exposure time. More X-rays at anode
  19. Small focal
    Electron interaction over smaller area of anode; finer detail
  20. OD
    • Black OD 3 or greater
    • Clear is less than 0.2
    • Light OD of 2
    • Useful range 2?
  21. High OD
    Over exposure too dark
  22. Low OD
    Under expose
  23. Change in OD req what technique
    • Fix distance
    • MAs used to control OD change in 30% mAs is used to produce a visible image
  24. Body habitus
    Thicker body = more strength
  25. Advantage of large focal spot over small
    Large - more X-rays
  26. Contrast
    Difference in OD between adjacent anatomical structures or the variations in OD on a radiograph
  27. High contrast
    Bones spinal column
  28. Low contrast
    Psoas muscle, kidney
  29. Radiographic film cross section
    Super coat, emulsion, adhesive, base, adhesive, emulsion, supercoat
  30. 90 second processor
    Developer fixer washing drying
  31. Process whereby latent image is created in one crystal of the film emulsion
    The exposed crystal , electron collected at sensitivity center. These elections concert silver jobs to atomic silver
  32. Gloves goggles
    Toxic skin burns eye irritations
  33. Proper dark room procedure
    Color watt distance from film
  34. Film damp
    Dryer is out
  35. Reg screen film
    Double emulsion
  36. Mammography
    Single screen single side emulsion
  37. Photon
    Electromagnetic radiation that has neither mass nor electric charge but interacts with matter as though it's a particle
  38. W =
    Tungsten
  39. Alpha particle
    Particulate from of ionizing radiation that consists of two photon an two neutron.

    Helium emitted from nucleus of radioactive atom
  40. Fundamental particles within an atom
    Electron proton neutron
  41. Property of an atom does biding energy describe
    Electron closer to nucleus Stronger binding
  42. Can atoms be ionized by Changing number of positive charges ?
    No, bound strongly together and that action would change type of atom
  43. How are ion pairs formed?
    Opposite charged particle come together
  44. Why doesn't an electron spontaneously fly away from nucleus atom ?
    Tightly bonded strength = certain amount of energy to release
