XRay Procedures Manual There are two general types of xray procedures: radiographic examinations and fluoroscopic examinations. Radiographic examinations, which will be used in this study, employ xray film and usually on individual technicians' techniques.

Contacting the Radiation Safety Officer for shielding calculations for rooms proposed for a different type of xray modality or for a new installation of a xray producing device.
5. Some procedures require that the xray tube be angulated either up (cephalad) or down (caudal) a certain number of degrees. An indicator of some type mounted directly to the ray tube housingx measures tube tilt.

The radiation dose the patient receives varies depending on the individual procedure, but is generally less than that received during fluoroscopy and computed tomography procedures.
Different types of Xrays are used for different purposes. For example, your doctor may order a mammogram to examine your breasts. Or they may order an X Standard Operating and Quality Assurance Procedures.

Many Radiation Safety Training and Procedure Manual for Safe Use of Analytical Xray Equipment 2015. Quality Control, QC, tests are performed for each xray producing device annually.
Average or representative xray exposures for the most common procedures are measured annually. The energy spectrum of the xray beam is essentially unchanged, as are the relative numbers of xray photons penetrating tissues of different densities such as bone, soft tissue, and fat.
However, the amount of darkening on the image is related to the total number of photons reaching it.
