X-rays refer to radiation, waves or particles that travel through the air like light or radio signals. X-ray energy is high enough that some radiation passes through objects (such as internal organs, body tissues, and clothing) and onto X-ray detectors.
Medical X-rays are used to diagnose medical conditions or injuries. They are used in many types of examinations and procedures. Some examples include:
- X-ray radiography - to find orthopedic damage, tumors, pneumonias and foreign objects
- Fluoroscopy - to dynamically visualize the body as in a live image
