X Ray

What is X-ray?

X-rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. An x-ray is a type of electromagnetic radiation. It is used to create images of the inside of objects, such as the human body. X-rays are produced by machines called x-ray generators. They are used in medicine, dentistry, and industry. X-rays can be harmful to human health, so they must be used carefully.

X - ray

However, X-rays have higher energies than visible light. An X-ray is made up of X-ray photons (which are the particles that carry the energy) and X-ray wavelengths (the length of the X-ray). X-ray photons travel at a speed of about 186,000 miles per second.

An x-ray machine sends individual x-ray particles through the body. The images are recorded on a computer or film.

 ✅ Dense structures (such as bone) will block most x-ray particles and appear white.
 ✅ Metal and contrast media (special dye used to highlight areas of the body) will also appear white.
 ✅  Structures containing air will be blank, and muscle, fat, and fluid will appear shades of gray.

How the Test is Performed

The test is done in a hospital radiology department or the health care provider’s office. The type of X-Ray decides how you are positioned during the process. You may need several different x-ray views. The hospital’s neurology department offers a wide range of diagnostics services, including:

It would be best if you stayed still while having an x-ray. The body motion can cause blurry images. When the image is taken, you may be asked to hold your breath or not move for a second or two.
