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.
The tubehead is a sealed, heavy metal housing that contains the x-ray tube that produces dental x-rays. This learning object will provide students with practice identifying and labeling the dental x-ray tubehead.
The learner reads an explanation of how to determine lengths for tubing and pipe bending and then performs calculations in an interactive exercise. Two methods for determining angle bends are shown. A calculator is required.
Laboratory testing begins with a doctor's order and is followed by specimen collection. In this activity, learners review doctors’ lab orders and select the blood collection tubes required for each patient.
Dental x-rays are generated in the dental x-ray tube. Through this animated learning object, students will learn the steps in x-ray generation from turning on the x-ray unit to exposing the dental x-ray film.
