radiographic or fluoroscopic units that are transportable to the patients bedside or the OR
mobile units that have fluorscopic capabilities that are typically used in the operating room when imaging is necessary during surgical procedures
units designed for specific imaging procedures
Paroramic X-ray also known as
designed to image curved surfaces, typically the mandible and teeth
specialized procedure using ionizing radiation to provide information on the condition of the skeletal bones
a bone disease in which the bones become thinner and more porous and therefore are susceptible to fractures
an imaging procedure using movement of the x-ray tube and image receptor in opposing directions to create images of structures in a focal plane by blurring the anatomy located above and below the plane of interest
the arc created during total movement of the x-ray tube
Pivot point is also known as
a fixed point on the plane of the anatomic area to be imaged
Focal Plane also known as
Focal Plane/Object Plane
plane in which the area of interest lies
the thickness or width of the focal plane
