Radiography Quizzes & Trivia

When James Clerk Maxwell and Heinrich Hertz toyed with the theories of electromagnetism, did you think that any of them could have ever imagined that their work would be used to see inside the human body? The answer is probably not, since the one who discovered that electromagnetic radiation could pass through the human tissue, and not through bone or metal, was Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen.

Now, do you have X-ray vision to see through the questions of these radiography quizzes? “What is the theory of X-ray attenuation?”, “How is the X-ray image rendered?”, “What are the X-ray photons?”, and “How has this invention improved the diagnostic science?” are just the first questions you will have to answer to develop the meaning of radiography.

Radiography is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to view the internal structure of an object. In order to create an image, beams of electromagnetic radiation are produced by an X-ray generator and projected toward the object.

Radiography Questions & Answers


What is the ideal viewing condition for radiographs?
(18/36)^2 = (1/2)^2 =1/4;  the answer is 25 percent shorter than the original exposure time.
What happens when kilovoltage is applied to the X-ray?
Kilovoltage is the voltage at its peak that is given to the x-ray tube. It may seem scary to know that these kilovoltage have radiation and that may be exposed to the patient who is getting the x-ray done. The electrons in the x-ray are increased in
How is X-ray heat generated?
D.Greater than 99% of the kinetic energy imparted on the electron beam is lost in the form of heat at the anode target. https://xray.oxinst.com/application-notes/managing-the-heat-produced-by-x-ray-tubes
Is the following true or false? The Bremsstrahlung process involves the production of ion pairs when one electron collides with another?
False.... bremsstrahlung happens when electrons attracted to neutron. not when electron collides with another
