  11. 11) How many times should x-ray scatter before hitting the control booth?
    x-ray should scatter twice before hitting the control booth.
  12. 12) Explain how collimation affects the density of radiographs? ( Wide collimation, tighter collimation )
    A wider collimation will show a lighter radiograph ( lower density )Tighter collimation will make show higher density
  13. 13) Someone with a blood infection bleeds onto a blanket. How should you dispose of it?
    You dispose of it by putting in the regular linen disposal. Just because it's infected doesn't make it so you put it somewhere else. All linen are considered contaminated.
