    Caudal mandibular teeth
  3. If the x-ray beam is aimed at the tooth, how will the image be distorted?
  4. If the x-ray beam is aimed at the film, how will the image be distorted?
  5. How is the bisecting angle technique performed
    Visualizing an imaginary line that bisects the angle of the film and the angle of the tooth. Aim the machine head so that the beam will be perpendicular to this imaginary line.

  12. Attenuation means...
    the weakening of the sound waves as they pass through body structures.
  13. What is the difference between a low and high frequency transducer on an ultrasound machine?
    • high-greater resolution, increased attenuation, less penetration.
    • low-deeper penetration, less resolution
  14. An entire section of the upper and lower arcades do not interdigitate.
    Wry Bite
  15. Central incisors of the upper and lower arcades are not aligned.
