Amplitude affects the thickness of the section demonstrated on a tomogram.
Another factor that controls thickness is:
Because tube movement has the effect of increasing part thickness, an increase
of ____________________ in mAs over the normal technique for the part is
needed for tomography.
a. 50 to 75 percent.
b. 50 to 100 percent.
75 to 150 percent.
d. 100 to 150 percent.
A particular body section unit is set for a tube amplitude of 24 inches and a rate of
12 inches per second. What exposure time (in seconds) should be set?
