Radiology Facts (cont’d)  Radiology Facts (cont’d)      Panoramic radiograph with one second of movement by patient results in wavy inferior border of the mandible and unsharp image vertically across the image at that site Major biologic damage from ionizing radiation is primarily due to radiolysis of the water molecules Electrons flow from cathode to anode with the energy converted to heat Recognize MRI and CT films Recognize technical errors – Incorrect beam centering (“cone cut”) – Blurring due to patient movement 169   Penumbra – the geometric unsharpness with a fuzzy area surrounding the contours of the teeth and osseous tissues An intensifying screen is used with external radiographs to decrease the radiation exposure The oil unit of an x-ray tube housing xfunctions to dissipate heat from the target 170 29 .
