Radiography Questions and Answers


1) Which statement is not true of radiography? Answer :d is the answer - This statement is not true because you need access to both sides of a test object in order to use radiography inspection. 2) Which of the following detects radiation? Answer :Survey Meter - Survey meters are used to detect radiation. 3) True or False- Less radiation absorption occurs when materials are thicker and more dense. Answer : False - Less radiation is absorption when materials are thinner and if there are voids. 4) The sharpness of a radiographic image is determined by ___________ Answer : "c" - The size of the radiation source, ratio of the object to film and the distance of the radiation source to object all influence the sharpness of an RT image. 5) True or False - The Penumbra is normally seen in a radiography. Answer : False - It's the Umbra that is typically seen not the penumbra. 6) Which one is not an energy form released from radium? Answer : Roentgen is not an energy source. Roentgen is a measurement unit for radiation intensity..

7)Which atomic particle carries a unit negative electric charge and whose mass is 1/1840 atomic mass unit? Answer :Electron carries a unit negative electric charge with an atomic mass unit of 1/1840. 8) Which one is the best for radiography of thin metals? Answer :Thulium-170 is the best for RT of thin metals 9) Film Contrast is determined by the following factors: Answer : All the above - Grain size, type of film, processing chemicals and their chemistry/concentration levels, development time and temperature can all impact the contrast in film 10) Exposure to radiation is measured in _______. Answer : a and b - Radiation is measured in roentgens and sieverts.
