Term:

kVp

Definition:

Peak voltage put across the anode-cathode in an x-ray tube. This determines the peak x-ray energy in the output energy spectrum

Term:

kVp

Definition:

Kilovoltage peak used to create ionizing radiation. In mammography, molybdenum targets should range between 24 to 32 kVp and rhodium targets should range at least 28 to 38 kVp.

Term:

kVp

Definition:

the voltage applied across the anode-cathode in an x-ray tube, which determines the peak x-ray energy in the output x-ray spectrum. kVp controls the contrast. Usually ranges from 20-40 kVp; however, the normal clinical practice range for mammography in the U.S. is 25-28 kVp.

• Design of Mammography Units

Term:

kVp

Definition:

Stands for kilovoltage peak and it refers to to the value of applied x-ray tube voltage during x-ray production. kVp controls the contrast of an image. Increasing kVp increases the amount of protons produced, too much and the image is overexposed.
