    B.
  3. How does filtration affect the primary beam?




    B.
  4. Patient dose is affected by:
    1. Inherent filtration
    2. Added filtration
    3. Source-image distance




    C.
  5. Which of the following groups of exposure factors will deliver the greatest amount of exposure to the patient?




    A.
  6. The principle function of x-ray beam filtration is to:




    B.
  7. Patient dose can be decreased by using:
    1. High-speed film and screen combination
    2. High-ratio grids
    3. Air-gap technique

    1. Flat contact
    2. Shaped (contour) contact
    3. Shadow




    D.
  9. The advantages of beam restriction include:
    1. Production of less scattered radiation
    2. Irradiation of less biologic material
