Grid interspace material can be made of what? Aluminum and Plastic Fiber (pg. 196)
Decreasing field size from 14x17 in. to 8x10 in, with no other changes, will do what? Decrease the amount of scattered radiation generated within the part. (pg. 197)
what's the function of the photostimulable phosphor? Component of the CR imaging plate that records the radiologic image. (pg. 197)
The term windowing describes the practice of what? Changing the image brightness and/or contrast scale. (pg. 198)

What is grid cutoff? the absorption of useful radiation by a grid. (pg. 206)
Pathologic or abnormal conditions that would require a decrease in exposure factors include what conditions? Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, pneumoperitoneum, emphysema, degenerative arthritis, and atrophic and necrotic conditions. (pg. 207)

In digital imaging, as DEL size decreases: spatial resolution increases (pg. 216)
The processing algorithm represents what? Anatomical part and projection (pg. 217)
A QA program serves to: Keep patient dose to a minimum, Keep radiographic quality consistent and ensure equipment efficiency (pg. 221)
Exposure-type artifacts include: Double exposure and motion (pg. 223)
A grid ratio is decreased, the scale of contrast becomes longer (pg. 225)
How often are radiographic equipment collimators required to be evaluated? Semiannually (pg. 226)
Grid cutoff due to off-centering would result in: Overall loss of density (226)
Distortion can be caused by what? tube angle, position of the organ or structure within the body, and the radiographic positioning of the part (pg. 229)
