  1. IS THE FILAMENT THE SOURCE ELECTRONS
    YES
  2. INCREASING KVP INCREASES SPEED OR ENERGY LEVEL OF ELECTRONS INCREASE
    TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  3. Heat production also increases directly with increasing kVp, TRUE OR FALSE
    TRUE
  4. ELECTRON COMING FROM L TO K SHELL RELEASES THE SAME ENERGY IN PHOTONS AS IN THE K SHELL
    TRUE
  5. “Characteristic x-rays can be produced in a tungsten target only when the kVp is set at 60 or greater TRUE OR FALSE
    70 OR GREATER FALSE
  6. At greater than 70 kVp, approximately 85% of the beam consists of bremsstrahlung interactions.
  7. spectrum refers to
    the range of … values of any quantity such as x-rays
  8. HETEROGENOUS
    POLYENTERGETIC
    • HETER 1
    • POLY MANY
  9. WILL U HAVE A LOWER OR HIGHER BELL POINT IN Bremmsstrahlung IF U INCREASE Ma
    HIGHER
  10. IF YOU INCREASE kVP YOUR Bremmsstrahlung MOVES
    TO THE RIGHT
  11. Added filtration DOES WHAT
    PREVENTS LOW PHOTONS FROM BEING ABSORBED AND INCREASE CHANCE FOR BIOLOGICAL DAMAGE
