what is an x-ray a form of electromagnetic radiation that travels in in waves
what is an anode the side of the x-ray tube with the positive charge
what is the cathode the side of the x-ray tube with the negative charge
how are negatively charged electrons produced by the tungsten filament
name five parts of the x-ray machine control panel, x-ray tube, collimator, moveable table, bucky tray
what are the components involved in creating x-rays milliamperage (mA), kilovoltage (kvp), time (sec)
what is milliamperage (mA) the amount of energy in the circuit, number of electrons produced
what is kilovoltage peak (kvp) acceleration of electrons between anode and cathode , how fast / intensity
what is the time component the period which the x-rays are permitted to leave the xray tube measured in fractions of seconds
how do we measure the object being radiographed in cm
what is the difference between the x-ray vs radiograph xray is the energy that is used in the beam that passes through an object to produce an image.
