The Dental X-ray Tubehead
By Joan Rohrer
Learners examine the components of the x-ray tubehead, a sealed, heavy metal housing that contains the x-ray tube that produces dental x-rays. This object is designed to help students understand the functions and safety features of the tubehead.
Learners read and listen to the pronunciation of hundreds of medical terms that are arranged in a "jukebox." The terms are listed alphabetically and according to the following categories: aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms, blood bank, coagulation, fungi microorganisms, hematology, protozoa, and urinalysis. This learning activity requires a computer that is equipped with speakers.
