  9. Caldwell image (ethmoid/frontal sinus image)
    formed by?

  10. As the image intensifier’s FOV is reduced, how
    is the resulting image affected?
    • Magnification increased
    • Brightness decreased
    • Quality increased
  11. In 45 degree medial oblique of ankle:

    0.5 mm Al (smallest one)
  15. What terms are used to express resolution?
    Line – spread function & line pairs per millimeter
  16. Use of a portion of the input phosphor during
    fluoro, rather than the entire input phosphor will result in:
    Magnified image and improved spatial resolution

  20. A flat and upright abdomen is requested on an acutely ill patient, to demonstrate the presence of air-fluid levels. Because of the patient's condition, the x-ray table can be tilted upright only 70° (rather than the desired 90°). How should the central ray be directed?
    Parallel to the floor
