A field emission X-ray tube is provided for use in a mobile X-ray machine. An evacuated ceramic housing having a convoluted interior shape for dissipating sparks surrounds the components of the field emission tube. A cathode and, an anode which emits x-rays, are located within the ceramic housing. A hollow anode tube is connected to the anode at one end and a vacuum pinch off element at the other end. Stray radiation is attenuated by a lead ring positioned inside of the ceramic housing.
