KEYWORDS: X-Ray


X-RAY  is a form of electromagnetic radiation. In 1895 Wilhelm Röntgen discovered that X-rays were able to identify bone structures, and since then X-rays have been widely used for medical imaging, with the first medical use taking place less than a month after Röntgen’s paper on the subject. An x-ray image, or radiograph is made by placing an object in front of an X-ray detector and then illuminating it with a short X-ray pulse. The x-ray is also applied outside the medical world, for example in the field of airport security.Medical_X-Ray
