Iman added it Mar 30, X-rays can affect film emulsion to produce a visual image the radiograph and can cause certain salts to fluoresce and to emit light — the principle behind the use of intensifying screens in extraoral cassettes see Ch.


This explains why high- ing interactions within the tissues as before. It is therefore assumed that there is no threshold dose, and that every Dose Whole-body effect exposure to ionizing radiation carries with it the possibility of inducing a stochastic effect.

The energy of the bombarding electrons is directly related to the photons which is a measure of potential difference kV across the X-ray tube, their penetrating power.

In the groups listed above, that have been dengal to high doses of radiation, the incidence of cancer is likely to be increased and is referred to as the excess cancer inci- dence. Clinically, produce good contrast between the different our differing perceptions may lead to different shadows Fig.
