Stator's magnetism causes the rotor to turn what range of rpm's? 3200-3600 to 10000-12000 rpm's
What are the silver plated ball bearings used as between the shaft & rotor? Why is this? L.ubricant. If using liquid as a lubricant, it would form gas.
What is the shaft of the rotor made of? Why is this? Molybdenum. It has a high heat resistance.
Where is the timer circuit located? In between the autotransformer & step up transformer on the main circuit.
Why does the autotransformer have variable output? Varies the incoming line voltage to the appropriate level by varying the # of turns in the coil via the taps.
How does the falling load generator work? What is an advantage of a falling load generator? Disadvantages? Exposure starts at the highest mA station possible, once max heat load met, drops down to next. Can do shorter exposure times, since will be starting out in the highest mA. Cannot use breathing techniques. Consistent use of high mA shortens filament life.
How many diodes (rectifiers) does a 3 phase 6 pulse use? A 3 phase 12 pulse? 3 phase 6 pulse uses 6 diodes (rectifiers). 3 phase 12 pulse uses 12 diodes (rectifiers).
What is being checked in a QC test with a cylinder with a BB in center @ the top of the cylinder centered to the crosshairs? How often is this done? What is the acceptance limit? What is the limit for the SID w/tape measure? CR alignment. Semi annually. =/- 1% (In Ca it's =/- 2%). 2& for SID with tape measure.
Which size focal spot is the lead star pattern QC test for? The pinhole camera? Lead star pattern is for small focal spots (<3mm). Pinhole camera (>3mm).
What is used to measure for the QC test testing for exposure reproducibility? What is it measuring? When measuring several exposures are made in a row with the same technique (different mA different times = to same mAs), what QC test is performed first? It's measured with a dosimeter to measure if the exposures are all making the same density. The kVp & timer accuracy QC test is performed first.
What is the acceptance limit for the kVp & timer accuracy? +/- 5% for kVp & timer accuarcy.
Who performs the semi annual QC tests? Who does the annual testing? Who does the acceptance test? When is it done? QC X-ray tech does semi annual testing. The physicist does annual testing. The acceptance test is performed by the physicist & is done after installation, but before patient use.
Who does the x-ray tech report to for immediate service? To the manager.
What may form ghosting on CR images? Incomplete erasure.
If an artifact reappears on CR image if no visible artifact is found on the cassette, which area is faulty? If the artifact appears in different areas on CR images after checking for a visible artifact, what may the issue be? The area of the detector is faulty if the artifact appears in the same place. If the artifact appears in different areas, there may be an issue with the processor.
For DR systems, what can dust do to images? If there's persistent lack of density for CR images, where may the issue be? Dust in any area, may prevent light from being read, either preventing photoemission &/or photodetecting causing artifact, or non uniform density. Dust on the infrared beam for CR images.
How often should CR plates be erased? Plates should be erased every 48 hrs if they haven't been used (sooner if they're in the x-ray room).
What are the QC factors for the display monitor? Resolution, Luminance, Contrast uniformity & glare.
