Image Quality Factor

Patient Care in Radiography 8th Edition Chapter 2

The four prime factors of radiographic exposure are: Exposure Time, Milliamperage, Kilovoltage, Source-Image Distance
The prime factor that controls the wavelength of the x-ray beam is: Kilovoltage
The prime factor that controls the rate at which x-rays are produced: Milliamperage
The mAs value of an exposure is varied to provide control of: Optical Density
The imaging system that produces an instantaneous digital image on a monitor: Digital Radiography(DR)
The hardware and software for managing digital images: Picture Archiving Communication System(PACS)
Three factors affected by the mA setting: Optical Density, Anode Heat, Radiation Intensity
What is the primary factor for controlling contrast? kVp
The inverse squares law states that radiation intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the: Source-Image Distance(SID)
A variation in the size or shape of the image in comparison to the object it represents: Distortion
