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 click on the root word of a medical term in the left-hand column and drag it to its definition in the right-hand column. There is a time limit, so students will need to train themselves to recognize these root words quickly. Students may repeat the activity as often as they wish. A total of 74 terms are given in random order.
