The term windowing describes the practice of? (pg 198) changing the image brightness and/or contrast scale
Foreshortening can be caused by? (pg 198) The radiographic object being placed at an angle to the IR
Using fixed mAs and varable KV technical factors, each centimeter increase in patient thickness requires what adjustment in KV? (PG 199) increase 2 kV
Unopened boxes of radiographic film should be stored away from radiation and...? (pg 199) in the vertical position
If a duration of 0.05 second was selected for a particular exposure, what MA would be necessary to produce 30 mAs? (pg 199) 600

The absorption of useful radiation by a grid is called? (pg 206) grid cutoff
A 15% decrease in KV accompanied by a 50% increase in mAs will result in? (pg 207) shorter scale of contrast

The intensity of ionizing radiation decreases as...? (pg 211) distance from the source of radiation increases
The process of "windowing" of digital images determines the image...? (pg 213) contrast
What is the purpose of the thin layer of lead that is often located in the rear portion of an IP? (PG 213) to prevent scattered radiation fog
The purpose of the electroconductive later of a CR PSP plate is to? (pg 213) facilitate transportation through the scanner/reader
