(Fixed/Variable) Tomography is more common? (Fixed/Variable) Tomography keeps magnification constant on all images? Variable common, Fixed constant Mag
In Tomography, ↑ Amplitude/Exposure angle = __ Blur = __ Focal plane thickness? ↑ Angle = ↑ Blurring = ↓ Plane Thickness
How does increasing the object distance from the focal plane affect Tomography? ↑ Distance = ↑ Blurring
In Tomography, ↑ OID = __ Blur = __ Magnification? ↑ OID = ↑ Blurring = ↑ Magnification
How does Tube Trajectory affect Tomography? Greater complexity, more Blurring, less artifacts
Blurring of structures (Inside/Outside) of focal plane enhances contrast/visibility of structures (Inside/Outside) the focal plane? Outside (Blur), Inside (Detail)
Increasing the Tomographic Angle INCREASES the plane of focus thickness? (T/F) False - ↑ angle = ↓ slice thickness
