increased density


Artifacts: Digital – Computed Radiography (CR) / phosphor plates

Increased density E (increased exposure to x rays) E =↑ Exposure (x rays) This occurs when the phosphor plate is overexposed (i.e. using a molar setting for an anterior radiograph). Increased density due to incorrect time setting. Decreased density E (decreased exposure to x rays) E (increased exposure to visible […]


Artifacts: Digital – Digital Radiography (DR) / sensors

The entire acronym of DEBT does not apply to both digital radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) systems.  Since both systems are a little different with artifacts I have broken them up into two separate posts. Increased density E (increased exposure to x rays) E =↑ Exposure (x rays) This […]


Artifacts: Analog/Film and DEBT – Part 1

A new school year is upon me and with that many topics that I will be covering with the students.  This is one topic I cover with the students about artifacts and a little acronym to help you remember them. I can’t take full credit for this acronym as the […]
