Discuss the importance of dental radiographs.

Dental radiographs are a necessary component of comprehensive patient care. Detection is one of the most important uses of dental radiographs. Many dental diseases and conditions produce no clinical signs or symptoms and are typically discovered only through the use of dental radiographs.

21

Summarize the discovery of x-radiation.

Roentgen discovered x-rays when using cathode rays. The cathode rays traveled in streams of colored light from one end of the tube to the other. Although those rays didn't travel far outside the tube, there was a glow on a screen several feet away and he discovered that mysterious rays could travel farther than the cathode rays and were emitted from the tube. Because he didn't know the nature or properties of the rays he called them X-rays, using the mathematical symbol for unknown: x.

22

Cathode ray

discharges emitted from the negative electrode in a vacuum tube that travel in straight lines, produce heat, and result in a greenish fluorescence

23

Fluorescence

a glow that results when a fluorescent substance is struck by light, cathode rays, or x-rays

24

Radiation

A form of energy carried by waves or a stream of particle

25

Radiograph

A two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object. In practice, often called an "x-ray"; this is not correct. X-ray (also x ray) is a term that refers to a beam of energy

26

Radiograph, dental

A photographic image produced on an image receptor by the passage of x-rays through teeth and related structures

27

Radiographer, dental

Any person who positions, exposes, and processes dental x-ray image receptors

28

Radiography

The art and science of making radiographs by the exposure of film to x-rays

29

Radiography, dental

The production of radiographs of the teeth and adjacent structures by the exposure of an image receptor to x-rays

30

Radiology

The science or study of radiation as used in medicine; a branch of medical science that deals with the use of x-rays, radioactive substances, and other forms of radiant energy in the diagnosis and treatment of disease

31

Vacuum tube

a sealed glass tube from which most of the air had been evacuated

32

X-radiation

A high-energy radiation produced by the collision of a beam of electrons with a metal target in an x-ray tube

33

X-ray

A beam of energy that has the power to penetrate substances and record image shadows on photographic film or digital sensors
