Sample text

I know people didn’t enjoy geometry at school, but all we are talking about here is the equivalent of shining that torch at an object. IMAGING GEOMETRY To produce an absolutely perfect image, all of the following must be in place: The X‐ray quanta must originate from an infinitely small point source. The distance from the X‐ray source to the object under examination must be relatively long. The distance from the source to the film/sensor plate must be relatively long. The distance from the object to the film/sensor must be relatively short.

The lower case p represents peak, because we always refer to the maximum (peak) value of the potential applied across an X‐ray tube. If the kV is raised, the filament electrons (as we have so far called them) will be attracted towards the target by a greater force, and they will be given more kinetic energy (will travel faster). If the filament electrons have greater kinetic energy, the probability that their interactions with target material will produce X‐rays is increased. Increasing kVp will give us X‐ray quanta with a maximum energy equal to the new kVp; it will also produce more X‐ray quanta at each of the energy levels found within the bremsstrahlung spectrum.

When looking at the journey of a single quantum passing through a material, the chances of it interacting with any particle are very small. One reason for this is the amount of empty space in the atom, and the other is that everything is moving. This means a quantum, even if it is on a similar path to a circulating electron, has to arrive at exactly the same time and place as the electron to interact with it. Despite this low probability many quanta do hit something, simply because of the total number of quanta contained in any beam.
