Backscatter X Ray

The X-ray machine is widely used in the medical world. X-ray is the backbone of today’s medical science and is effectively used for diagnostic radiography as well as for crystallography. Scientifically, an X-ray can be defined as an “electromagnetic radiation”, which works on the...

High Energy X Rays

High energy X-rays are also known as HEX-rays. The high energy X-rays are very potent and strong types of X-rays. These X-rays are higher in energy as compared to the normal X-rays. The order of the magnitude is said to be higher between 80 keV to 1000 keV. The X-rays increase in their energy levels as the...

Bone Fracture And X Ray

A bone fracture can be termed as a medical condition wherein the bone gets either cracked or broken. In many cases, the bone fracture is due to stress or high force impact, but some of the medical conditions that weaken the bones like osteoporosis, osteogenesis imperfecta (a brittle bone disease), bone...

How X Ray Works

X-rays are useful for many other applications such as diffractions, imagery etc. Additionally, X-ray technique involves production of x-rays through bombardment on a metal piece from x-rays tube with high speed of electrons. These electrons are accelerated by hundreds of kilovolts on the metal target. The...

X Ray For Spine Osteoarthritis

Are you getting pain in back or stiffness in your joint for more than two weeks? If yes then visit you doctor immediately. Better to refer a physician for an evaluation. There a vast possibility that you may read osteoarthritis in your medical results. These are the symptoms of osteoarthritis. There are...

Risks For X Ray Technician

Everybody has apprehensions while undergoing x-rays. Risks for x-ray technicians are considerably higher that those faced by the patient undergoing x-ray procedures. An x-ray technician gets exposed to radiation on a daily basis, which can be extremely harmful for his/her health. X-ray technicians work in a...

X Ray Microscopic Analysis

X-rays are one of the most helpful innovations by mankind. Many types of equipment such as abundant scientific and medical equipments use the characteristics of x-rays to carry out certain tests and studies. The main and important property of x-ray is they are highly penetrative and fast moving...

X Ray And Cancer Treatment

X-ray therapy or radiation therapy is effectively used to cure cancer. In this treatment, cancerous cells are killed with beam of high-energy particles or radiations like X-rays. X-rays damage the cancer cells by destroying their genetic material that controls growth and division of cell, which indeed stop...

Detection Of X Ray

X-rays are invisible to our eyes. Therefore, X-rays machines and photographic films are used for detection of X-rays. For the detection of X-rays it many include many features of X-rays such as, basic characteristics of X-rays and generation of X-rays. There are many methods used for detection of X-rays....

X Ray Microscope

An X-ray microscope is used for producing images of “smaller objects”. X-ray posses the property of not reflecting and therefore cannot be seen by the human eyes. The use of an X-ray microscope is to detect these invisible X-rays that “pass through the specimen” with the help of an...

X Ray Image

X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiations. The wavelength, of these electromagnetic radiations, range between 10 to 0.01 nanometers. X-rays are also said to be a form of ionizing radiations. These X-rays comfortably pass through any object, including the human body. Therefore, X-rays are greatly used...

X Ray Crystallography

X-ray crystallography is an experimental technique that takes the advantage of the fact that x-rays are diffracted by crystals. This is possible because x-rays have a proper wavelength to be scattered by the electron in an atom of comparable size and it is not an imaging technique. One cannot observe the...

X Ray Laser

X-ray laser was the greatest invention of 1970s. In this period, some physicist appreciated the fact that laser beams amplified using ions would have much energy as compare to the beams that are amplified using gases. For these high-energy lasers nuclear explosion were foreseen as power supply. This vision...

Chest X Ray

The projection radiographs of the thoracic region i.e. the chest region are called the chest x-rays. They are used to diagnose problems in the chest region. Just like the other x-rays, they too, are taken by the radiographs. For the chest region, the typical dose of x-rays used is generally around six mrem....

Diagnostic Significance Of X Ray

The X-rays are widely used these days in the diagnosis of the different types of diseases. Next only to the laboratory tests, they are the second most popular tests, done for the detection of various bone defects. The diagnostic significance of X-rays lies in the advantages and the number of diseases that...
