Note number of low-energy photons produced. Note where the characteristic x-rays occur. Collimation A collimating device (Figure 2-13) restricts the size and shape of the x-ray beam as it leaves the tube head. In intraoral radiography the beam should be just large enough to cover the film packet or digital sensor. Circular collimation allows a margin of error in film beam alignment (Figure 2-14). A beam size any larger than this would expose the patient’s face to unnecessary primary radiation. Historically in dentistry the diameter of the x-ray beam measured at the patient’s face has been decreasing.

It is important to remember that any secondary radiation or light that affects the film decreases the desired contrast, or “fogs” the film and degrades the image. Fogging of the film must be differentiated from the overall grayish appearance of radiographs produced at high kVp settings. Definition can also be judged by the size of the penumbra the image produces. IMAGE DETAIL AND DEFINITION Image detail is the visual quality of a radiograph that depends on definition or sharpness. It is measured in the number of line pairs per millimeter that can be seen on an imaging device.

As mentioned, the limiting factor is the heat produced at the desired small target. Milliamperage higher than 15 produces too many electrons bombarding the target and thus too much heat. As mentioned, some x-ray machines in dentistry are made specifically for extraoral radiography and have rotating anodes. A rotating anode is a spinning disk composed of many tungsten targets instead of one stationary target, as found in the standard intraoral x-ray unit. Because the targets are rotating, they are struck by the electrons through only part of their 360-degree rotation.
