Cone Cut in Radiograph

 # Which of the following describes the etiology of cone-cutting?
A. Inadequate exposure time
B. Excessive mA
C. Excessive kVp
D. Incorrect source-object distance
E. Incorrect placement of X-ray machine



The correct answer is E. Incorrect placement of X Ray machine.

Cone-cutting occurs when the X-ray machine is not lined up properly with the X-ray sensor or film.

The film or sensor should be placed perpendicular to the X-ray
collimator to ensure that all of the necessary information is picked
up.

External devices are often used to ensure that the film/sensor are
perpendicular to the X-ray collimator.
