Production, properties and radology of X-rays 17 Fig. Implant assessment 6. X-ray equipment, films and processing 35 Fig. Stage 1 — the incoming electron collides with an inner-shell tungsten electron and displaces it; Stage 2 — outer-shell electrons drop into the inner shells with subsequent emission of X-ray photons. Dental radiography – general patient considerations including control of infection 9.


The NRPB suggests that for chil- the risk of stochastic effects is very small. The photon lines are named K and L, depending on the raidography from which they have been emitted see Fig. Perception is the act or faculty of perceiving. Eseentials image is produced by X-rays passing through an object and interacting with the photographic The final shadow density of any object is thus emulsion on a film.

Not surprised it’s the market leader! Production, properties and interactions of X-rays 21 Interaction of X-rays with matter When X-rays strike matter, such as a patient’s Fig. They all produce the X-rays consist of three main components: A must have for undergraduates and GDPs alike!

Radiological differential diagnosis – Radiography describing a lesion 7. There is the additional benefit of an online self-assessment module, available once you purchase the book, which contains multiple choice questions, extended matching questions and ‘drag and drop’ style questions.

The various important radiology in perspective. For more information, visit the Cookie page.


You may also complete your request on-line via the Elsevier Science homepage http: These damaging effects may be induced when leukaemia. Lateral views of the same masses shown in Fig.

Topics address the whole BDS curriculum and range from the physics of imaging and radiation protection to infection control and regional image interpretation. This happens inside a number of electrons per shell: X-ray equipment, films and processing 33 rdiography Dispatched from the UK in 1 business day When will my order arrive?

This is helpful as it means the information is accessible to all; you can start from the beginning and work through full chapters, or simply access a particular area you are interested in Shorter-wavelength X-rays possess greater energy and can therefore penetrate a greater Fig. A wide range or spec- sten atoms by the bombarding electrons, the trum of photon energies is therefore possible and orbiting tungsten electrons reic themselves is termed the continuous spectrum see Fig.

They con- electromagnetic radiation and are part of the elec- sist of a central dense nucleus made up of nuclear tromagnetic spectrum, which also includes low- particles — protons and neutrons — surrounded by energy radiowaves, television and visible light see electrons in specific orbits or shells see Fig.

Nucleus X-rays are described as consisting of wave packets of energy.

This produces a similar image in each case containing a mass in a different position whaitex of a different with no evidence of the mass. The periodontal tissues and periodontal disease Part 3 Radiation protection The image shows the various black, grey and white radiographic shadows.


The author and the publishers have taken care to ensure that the information given in this text is accurate and up to date. Many of the recently developed alternative views may still not be able to provide all the and specialized imaging modalities described in desired information for a diagnosis to be made Chapter 17 have been designed to try to overcome see Fig.

These include a mixture of single best answer and multiple correct answer questions, drag and drop identification of radiological anatomy as well as new examples of various pathological conditions to enable practice of diagnostic skills. Written in a highly accessible manner, each page spread has been carefully designed to ensure clarity of understanding by the reader to facilitate both examination success and confidence and safety in the clinical situation.

Trauma to the teeth and facial skeleton The problem of quantifying the risk is com- pounded because cancer is a common disease, so in any group of individuals studied there is likely to be some incidence of cancer.

The energy of the bombarding electrons is directly related to the photons which is a measure of potential difference kV across the X-ray tube, their penetrating power. This is of particular impor- further in Chapter 5.

This explains why high- ing interactions within the tissues as before. Micheal Parkinson Project Development Manager: The periodontal tissues and periodontal disease This is discussed further in Chapter 6. A black, white and grey shadowgraph is a form of non-clinical example is shown in Figure 1.
