ALARA As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
inherent filter function function is to screen out most of the longer and less useful wave lengths of radiation
central beam function is used to expose the x-ray film
position-indicator device function To guide and limit the amount of radiation
target film distance (TFD) definition is the distance from the source of the x-ray to the object being radiographed
Dental x-ray units usually operate in the range of what? 7.5, 10 to 15 mA
kilovoltage function used to determine the quality of the central beam
radiolucent definition describe less dense tissues and materials that do permit the x-ray to pass through onto the dental film
radiopaque tissue definition dense structures that do not permit the passage of x-ray through them onto the film
collimator function reduce the size of the x-ray beam and to reduce the amount of radiation to the patient
