How do medical X-Rays work?

To create an x-ray, a patient is positioned so that the part of the body to be acquired is between an x-ray source and an x-ray detector. When the machine is turned on, X-rays pass through the body and are absorbed in different amounts by different tissues, depending on the radiological density of the tissues they pass through.
The radiological density is determined by both the density and the atomic number (the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom) of the materials to be acquired. For 2 D Echo in Vishrantwadi, Visit us.


For example, structures such as bone contain calcium, which has a higher atomic number than most tissues. Due to this property, bones readily absorb X-rays and thus produce high contrast on the X-ray detector. As a result, bony structures appear whiter than other tissue against the black background of an X-ray. Conversely, X-rays more easily pass through radiologically less dense tissue such as fat and muscle, as well as air-filled cavities such as the lungs. These structures are displayed in shades of gray on an x-ray..
