Flashcards in Positioning Principles Deck (7)
Radiographs are evaluated by a definable standard called:
What are the five basic radiographis criteria?
1. Structures shown
3. Collimation and CR
4. Exposure criteria
5. Image Markers
Describe "structures shown" in relation to radiographic criteria.
The anatomic parts and structures visualized on a radiograph.
Describe "positioning" in relation to radiographic criteria.
Placement of body part in relationship to IR.
Positioning factors important for projection.
Describe "Collimation and CR" in relation to radiographic criteria.
Describes how collimation borders should be seen.
Location of CR
Center of collimation.
Describe "Exposure Criteria" in relation to radiographic criteria.
Describes how technique can be evautated for optimum exposure of body part.
