Where does radon come from the decay of urnium and emits alpha particles
What is the largest man-made source of radiation medical/diagnostic x-rays
who discovered x-rays and when? Wilhelm Roentgen on November 8, 1895
Who won the first Nobel Peace Prize and for what Wilhelm Roentgen for physics
What kind of x-ray tube was used to discover x-rays Crookes Tube it caused screens to glow --Fluoresence
What type of x-ray tube is used today Coolidge Tube
What are the two general types of x-ray examinations Radiography and fluoroscopy

What are the Ten Commandments of Radiation Protection 3 cardinal rules, Familiarity,primary beam, Protective appareal, radiation monitor, never hold patient,when holdin patient wear protective gear, sheilding, pregnant women,Collimate
What are the 3 cardinal rules Time--keep exposure to a minimum, Distance--stand as far back as possible, Shielding--Always shoeld the patient when doing so will not interfere with the objectives of thw examination and always shield yourself
What does ALARA stand for As Low As Reasonably Achievable
What are some primary radiation protective devices Flitration, Collimation, Intensifying Screens, Protective Appareal, Gonadal Shielding, Protective barriers
Whay are metal filters placed in the primary beam to filter out weak harmful x-rays for the patient protection and they reduse skin dosage
Why is collimation used during x-ray examines to restrict the primary beam which increases the patient protection from scatter radiation and also improves quality images
how much of the density on an x-ray film image is due to the light of the intensifying screens 95%
Give an example of protective apparel Lead impregnated materials such as gloves and aprons
Why are gonadal shields used to protect a patient of childbearing age
Why are protective barriers used to protect the personnel and those who are in the adjacent room
Where is the control console located in the control booth and radiation scatters twice before entering
When should you aviod examines on a pregnant women At all times if possible, especially during the first trimester
