Example text

A typical fluoroscopic imaging system is shown in Fig. 2–3. The image intensifier tube is an evacuated glass or metal tube with a fluorescent screen (input phosphor) that glows with the image produced by the x-ray pattern that exits the patient. The light from the input phosphor causes ejection of electrons from a photoelectric material adjacent to the input phosphor. -diameter) screen (the output phosphor), which glows with the image due to the energy deposited by the impact of the accelerated electrons.

The mA is simply a measure of the number of electrons per second making the trip across the x-ray tube from filament to anode. The rate of x-ray production (number of x-rays produced per second) is proportional to the product of milliamperage and kilovoltage squared. The quantity of x-rays produced in an exposure of duration s (in seconds) is proportional to the product of mA and time.

Recall that the quantity of x-rays produced during an exposure is proportional to However, because the beam is more penetrating at high kilovoltage, the x-ray exposure that reaches the film through a patient is roughly proportional to That is, it depends very strongly on kilovoltage. The exposure time required to blacken the film is thus proportional to The heat deposited in the anode is proportional to the product of kilovolts and mAs. Choice of an exposure technique is generally made by first selecting the kilovoltage.
