LCCC 117 Test 3

WTF is this?No Shit Sherlock
Incident electrons from Thermionic Emission hit the Anode at what speed? Half the speed of light
Xrays have an average energy of ___ ? 1/3 the set kVp
3 Interactions of Electrons & Target Heat, Characteristic Rays, Bremsstrahlung Rays
Heat is produced when __ shell electrons are excited? Outer
__ Xrays have energy equal to the difference in BINDING Energies btwn K & outer shells of Target? Characteristic
__ Xrays have energy equal to the Lost KINETIC Energy of the Incident electron? Bremsstrahlung
Characteristic Xrays are (Heterogenous/Homogeneous) ? Homogeneous
Bremsstrahlung Xrays are (Heterogenous/Homogeneous) ? Heterogenous
What makes Characteristic Xrays Homogeneous? 69.5 keV
Xray Spectrum Factors (5) kVp, mA, Waveform, Target Material, Filtration
How does ↑ kVp affect the Xray Spectrum Curve? ↑ kVp=↑ Quantity & ↑ Average Energy & ↑ Max (Max=kVp)
How does ↑ mA affect the Xray Spectrum Curve? ↑ mA = ↑ Quantity ONLY (No affect on Avrg or Max)
How does ↑ Waveform affect the Xray Spectrum Curve? ↑ Quantity & ↑ Average Energy (No affect on Max)
How does Target Material affect the Xray Spectrum Curve? Characteristic energy changes so PEAK changes (17 keV vs 69.5)
How does ↑ Filtration affect the Xray Spectrum Curve? ↑ Filtration = ↓ Quantity & ↑ Average Energy
Controlling factor of QUANTITY? mAs
Controlling factor of QUALITY? kVp
Interactions of Xray PHOTON & Matter? Compton Effect, Photoelectric Effect (+Transmission)
Point at which Photoelectric & Compton occur EQUALLY? 35 kVp
There are more __ Interactions when kVp <35? Photoelectric (Absorption)
There are more __ Interactions with high kVp (ex 85)? Transmission
Xray Interaction with an Outer Shell e⁻ that changes the direction of the Incident Photon? Compton Effect
Compton Scatter is dependent on the __ of the Photon and has a Probability of __ ? keV, 1/Energy
Photoelectric Absorption is dependent on the __ of the Photon and the __ of the Absorber ? keV, Atomic #
Photoelectric Absorption has a Probability of __ ? (1/Energy)³ - Z³
Xray Interaction with a K Shell e⁻ where the Incident Photon is ABORBED and Secondary Radiation is produced? Photoelectric Absorption
As kVp increase, the PROBABILITY of Compton Interactions INCREASES (T/F)? False - Probability Decreases
Fluoroscopy operates in what range of mA? 0.5-5 mA
Fluoro uses (High/Low) mA with a (High/Low) Patient Dose? Low mA, High Dose
What Image Intensifier part is made with Cesium Iodide? Input Phosphor
What Image Intensifier part is made with Zinc Cadmium Sulfide? Output Phosphor
Which formula calculates the added Energy from e⁻ acceleration in the Image Intensifier? Flux Gain
