  1. the type of contrast you get with low kvp
    high contrast
  2. long scale
    low contrast
  3. increased contrast
    high contrast
  4. the type of contrast you get with high kvp
    low contrast
  5. many shades of gray
    low contrast
  6. short scale contrast
    high contrast
  7. nlack and white with few shades of gray
    high contrast
  8. decreased contrast
    low contrast
  9. better contrast/good contrast
    high contrast
  10. what type of radiaition is caused by scatter radiation/fog
    low contrast
  11. what refers to the quality of the beam
    kvp
  12. what is the main controller of radiographic density/IR exposure
    mAS
  13. an increase of 100%(double) will approximately double the density/IR exposure
    mAs
  14. refers to the penetrability of the beam
    kVp
  15. refers to the quantity of the beam
    kvp and mas
  16. effects the number of photons produced
    kvp and mas
  17. a 15% decrease will cut radiographic density/IR exposure in half
    kvp
  18. a 30% change is required for a noticeable difference
    mas
  19. effects the number of photons and the energy of the photond in the beam
    kvp
  20. controls radiographic contrast
    kvp
  21. controls the differences in radiographic densities/shades of gray
    kvp
  22. is directly proportional to the square of the distance
    mas
  23. if mas is double _______ must be decreased by 15%to maintain density
    kVP
  24. will affect both density/IR exposure and contrast
    kVp
  25. an increase in this will increase radiographic density/IR exposure only
    mas
