In both cases the selective penetration desired is not achieved. This can be demonstrated with the use of an aluminum step wedge (Figure 3-1). As the wedge gets thicker, there is a decrease in x-ray penetration. The only variables of object contrast are the quality or penetration of Figure 3-1. Aluminum step wedge. Image Formation 39 the x-rays within the dental diagnostic penetration range of 65 to 100 kVp and the amount of scatter radiation produced. The image difference between films produced at the different kVp settings in the dental range is the resulting contrast.
These are the optimal requirements. Because of anatomic constraints in intraoral radiography, it is impossible to meet all of these requirements at the same time. In most periapical projections it is not possible for the tooth and film to be parallel and still be close together. Focal-Film Distance (Source-Film Distance) The most common FFDs used in dentistry are 8, 12, and 16 in. An FFD of less than 8 in may cause magnification of the image that is larger than the film (see Object Primary radiation Central ray Focal point Film Focal-object distance Focal-film distance Figure 3-7.
Rectification If the dental x-ray machine is operating on alternating current, in the x-ray tube itself the polarity is reversed 60 times per second. When the direction of the current flow is reversed, the tungsten target becomes the negative pole, or cathode, and the tungsten filament becomes the positive pole, or anode. During the alternating 1/120 second (half of a cycle) when the current is reversed, few x-rays are produced because there are few electrons available at the filament to travel across the tube and strike the target; thus the current is blocked from traveling across the tube.
