# of electrons deposited in the DEL corresponds to the amount of .....? radiation that strikes each area
Gas filled CT detectors have a _____ acceptance angle than scintillator based detectors. smaller
Receptor with _____ DQE can produce optimal images with less radiation exposure highest
Increased absorption efficiency has what effect on the DQE of a receptor? increases the DQE of the receptor
Spatial resolution can be measured with _____/mm or ____/mm cycles/mm or lp/mm
Increasing sampling frequency means what more samples are taken per given unit of measurement
Greater the sampling frequency, the ____ info is extracted from the IR more
Dynamic range is the IR's ability.... to respond to exposure
Range of exposures that will produce an optimal image is termed exposure latitude
Area of geometric blur surrounding the edges of an object is penumbra
_____ phosphor gives off light photons that strike the photocathode, causing electrons to be _____. These electrons strike the ____ pohophor, causing _____ to be emitted. input, released. Output, light photons emitted.
Why do LCD monitors excel over cathode ray tube displays? They consume less energy and have better spatial resolution
Workstation LCD display have a much _____ luminance than traditional viewbow illuminators. lower
Contrast capability of a monitor controls the ability of users to see ____ and ____ in a display image lines and fine structures
Modality worklist should include what 3 things? modality, exam, pt location
Adding black borders to display is called shuttering
pixel value manipulation to change the visual appearance is called edge enhancement
___ is a conventional measurement unit for dose equivalent when measuring radiation REM
_______ attach to the collimator and cast a shadow on the patient over the area where no radiation will be directed. They dont need touch the patient shadow shields
PBL is what positive beam limitation. auto collimation
Adjusting the image data to match the acceptable display data for a particular anatomical structure is known as automatic rescaling
Using ____ to adjust for grid ratio increase in DR is a viable way to adjust technique without affecting image quality kVp
Image noise limits the ______ of operation speed class
speed class of operation for analog IR is ___. fixed
