Jun 01,  · These days, medical X-rays come in multiple formats: plain film used in dental exams and doctors’ offices; fluoroscopy, which bounces a continuous X-ray beam off contrast agents you’ve either injected or ingested, providing a moving real-time image of arteries and intestines; and the computed tomography (CT) scan, which couples a powerful Author: Christian Millman.

    Jan 23,  · X-ray is the most common imaging test used for detecting and diagnosing medical conditions. X-rays have been in use by the doctors for many decades. X-ray helps in looking at the inside of the body without having to cut open the body or make an incision. Know the risks and benefits of X-Ray, its uses, purpose, procedure and history. Medical uses Since Röntgen's discovery that X-rays can identify bony structures, X-rays have been developed for their use in medical imaging. Radiology is a specialized field of medicine. Radiographers employ radiography and other techniques for diagnostic imaging. Indeed, this is probably the most common use of X-ray technology.

    The roentgen or röntgen (/ ˈ r ɜː n t ɡ ə n /) (symbol R) is a legacy unit of measurement for the exposure of X-rays and gamma rays, and is defined as the electric charge freed by such radiation in a specified volume of air divided by the mass of that air (coulomb per kilogram).SI base units: ×10−4 A⋅s/kg. Physics & the Detection of Medical X-Rays Röntgen's Discovery. Röntgen's accidentally discovered of the radiation which he called "x-rays" and is now called Röntgen rays in much of the world. This discovery can offer students a good understanding of how scientific discoveries occur. The Web has several sites which include excellent pictures.
