X-RAY is a form of electromagnetic radiations similar to light rays. X-rays are more energetic than light rays and are invisible to human eye. These radiations scan the structure within the body and create images of scanned structures on photographic film. The scanned and created images are also known as diagnostic x rays.
X-rays are created when an electric current is passed through a vacuum tube. When the machine is scanned our body the shadow created and X-ray passed through the body could be stored permanently on photographic plates. X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz.
How do an X-ray work?
Xray is passed easily through the soft tissue of the body. Xrays can scan all the bones of the body parts easily. The process of Xrays is painless.X rays are performed by positioning the part of the body to be verified between a focused beam of x rays and a plate containing film. Greater is the density of material more rays are absorbed.
The process of Xrays helps the doctor to see the broken bones, swallowed objects, and cavities easily. The various modified Xrays processes help to examine lungs, intestines and soft tissue. The process of X-rays is very simple.
