Radiographic Image Analysis And Procedures! Radiography Trivia Quiz

As we continue to learn more about Radiography this week, we covered a lot on Radiographic Image Analysis and Procedures. The quiz below is designed to help you have a deeper understanding of the topic and therefore have an easy time when you have to take a test on the topic. Give it a try and get to see just how much you understood.
