T/F: In a variable kV system, the mAs is varied to achieve an appropriate image contrast False
In a variable kV system, the Kv is varied according to the measure of the body part _____. thickness
T/F: An advantage of a variable kV system is the small incremental changes in exposure for variations in the body part thickness are possible true
T/F: Increasing kVp reduces radiographic contrast. true
Steps for a variable kV system should be in groups of ___ amount of centimeters in increments. 5
