WHAT ARE X-RAYS

The origional use of x-rays was for imaging bones, which were easily distinguishable from soft tissues on the film that was available at the time. However, more accurate focusing systems and more sensitive detection methods, such as improved electronic imaging sensors, have made it possible to distinguish increasingly fine detail and subtle differences in tissue density, while using much lower exposure levels. X-Ray imaging examinations are recognised as a valuable tool for a wide range of examinations and procedures. They are used as a noninvasive and painless method for disgnosing disease and monitoring therapy, as well as supporting medical and surgical treatment planning.

X-rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. He was awarded the Nobel prize in physics in 1901. According to NobelPrize.org, "X-rays are produced when electrons strike a metal target. The electrons are liberated from the heated filament and accelerated by a high voltage towards the metal target." When the electrons strike the target, their energy is converted to X-rays.

X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, as are radio waves, infrared radiation, visible light , ultraviolet radiation and microwaves.
