What is conventional tomography?
What is the fulcrum?
What is the objective plane/focal plane?
it is where the tube and film move in opposing directions to make blur and create sliced image
fulcrum is the pivot point object
area where object is clear and in focus
What is the exposure angle
What is the tube trajectory?
is the distance the tube travels while making an exposure
the pattern that the tube moves in (linear hypocycoidal)
What is blur?
What is the most complex tube trajectory?
The greater the exposure arc the _____ the cut.
The more complex the tube trajectory ______ the cut.
What is autotomography?
happens when the tube and IR are stationary and the patient does the movement
the farther from the object plane an atomic structure is, the _______ blurred it is image will be
the _______ determines the thickness of the cut
Tomographic angles of less than 10 degrees are refereed to as
What is hypertension? Hypotension?
What is tachycardia? Bradycardia?
What is the average pulse

What is the average respiration range?
What is hyperventilation?
when a pt breathes to much o2 and exhaled too much co2 which disturbs the chemical imbalance of the blood
What gauge needles may be used during venipuncture for IVPs?
what is normal systolic and diastolic ranges
What is a butterfly set?
it is a needle that has two blue plastic handles that make it easier for entrance into a vein
What is an IV catheter?
it is a needle that has a plastic tube that is injected into a vein, the plastic tube or cath is left in the vein and introduce contrast through the tubing
What is extravasation?
How can you minimize extravasation?
What should you do when it occurs?
leakage of iodinated contrast media outside the vessel and into surrounding soft tissue
- Notify department nurse and or physician so that treatment can be administered
- quickly elevate the affected extremity above the heart to decrease capillary pressure
- use a cold compress followed by warm compress to relieve pain and improve resorption of contrast media
- document the incident
What is the proper disposal of all syringes and needles?
What is the most common vein for venipuncture?
What veins should be used for
- median cubital cephalic vein and basilic veins
- veins in the antecubital space
