English term or phrase: Tube angle
Tube angle must be identified on each image knee radiograph using lead marker from kit placed lateral to the anatomy being imaged.

Each knee image will require an initial read by the technologist to ascertain if any corrective action in knee position or tube angle is needed for the next image.

Locate the mark established during knee preparation. This mark will always be the point for the CR (central ray) placement on every adjustment of the tube angle.

Could someone please describe what does - tube - mean in this context?
Thank you!
