Dr. Scarlett :

Hi,

Dr. Scarlett :

I'll see what I can do to help!

Dr. Scarlett :

1. to penetrate further through an obese patient, you would want to increase the kVp by 15%

Customer:

hi =)

Customer:

Thank you so much! I thought that might be the answer, but wasn't to sure

Dr. Scarlett :

2. I think that c. is correct--a light flasher would be used to get the ID stamp on the film if you aren't using digital radiography.

Dr. Scarlett :

3. the heart is above the diaphragm, closer to the head, so CRANIAL is the correct term

Dr. Scarlett :

4. positive contrast is radiopaque and shows up white; radiolucent is negative contrast and shows up dark.

Dr. Scarlett :

5. not legal unless it is labelled, so d.

Customer:

ok that makes sense

Dr. Scarlett :

6. if they are in dorsal, they are on their back and the x-ray would first go though their ventral side.

Dr. Scarlett :

7. The TL junction is where the thoracic vertebrae "become" the lumbar vertebrae and the most common area fo spinal injury.

Dr. Scarlett :

8. you want to measure the thickest part of the body being radiographed, so b. is the answer.

Dr. Scarlett :

9. My CVT and I both think the best answer is b. caudal.

Dr. Scarlett :

10. You want to try and take thoracic rads on peak inhalation (although what you get is often not that!)

Customer:

Wow, thank you so much! You just answered all of my questions

Customer:

=)

Dr. Scarlett :

I hope that you answered them before I did! :) Where are you going for tech school?

Customer:

by some questions I was way off, but the other ones I was guessing, but wasn't sure if it was the right answer

Customer:

I'm going to Animal Behavior College for Veterinary Assistant

Customer:

I did =) was guessing 5 answers right, and 5 wrong

Dr. Scarlett :

Best go back over that chapter, then! :)

Customer:

okay I will! Thank you so much again and have a wonderful weekend! I appreciate your time and help

Dr. Scarlett :

You're welcome. It was kind of fun!
