the primary machine setting controlling depth of penetration
optimal developer temp is __ degrees F
the _____ transformer increases the incoming voltage from volts to kilovolts, called 'high voltage' circuit
T or F: there is no limit to how small a focal spot can be
T or F: silver should be disposed of by washing down the drain
hihg frequency type _______ are used in clinics to allow thousands of electrical waves to flow towards the xray tube instead of standard 60 cycle US alternating current
radiographer can switch filaments by turning the ___ selector
part of xray machine that directs electrons towards the light
thicker parts absorb (more/less) xrays and make film (darker/lighter)
difference in density and mass between two adjacent anatomic structures
what percent of the energy produced when electrons hit the target is converted into xrays?
electrons that collide with ______ produce xrays
dental units use what type of anode?
degree of blackness
(small/large) focal spots are desired because they result in very clear images
type of anode with limited ability to withstand heat generated by electrons hitting the target
The _____ effect is where the intensity of the beam varies and is stronger on the cathode side due to the angle of the target
xrays are (high/low) frequency waves
density difference between two adjacent areas on a radiograph
what metal is the window made of that allows xrays to leave the tube and expose the film
xrays travel in ______ lines
electrons are concentrated in a small area of the target called the ____
fixer pH is
visible difference between two adjacent radiographic densities
T or F: xrays produce a visible image on the film before processing
number of xrays leaving the tube is determined by what setting?
min dark room size is __ by __ feet
number of wave cycles that pass a stationary point in a second
xrays make radiographic film _____ (color)
encases entire xray tube to prevent stray radiation escaping and protects glass envelope from damage
_______ allow flow of electrons in one direction only
what is the viewing contrast desirable for soft tissues (high, low)
developer pH should be
smaller filaments have (smaller/larger) focusing cups
distance between two consecutive corresponding points on a wave
what metal is the focusing cup made of
As the focal spot becomes larger, the image becomes fuzzy and less clear; this is called the _______ effect
_____ wavelengths have higher frequencies
number of protons is (greater, equal, less) number of electrons

what metal is the filament made of?
a ______ transformer reduces incoming line current from amperes down to mA, called the 'low voltage' circuit
position the (thick/thin) area under the cathode side
