Default I'm Wearing an X Ray Vest for the January 18th Chat Thread

Most of us have had to get an X ray at one time or another. Did you know that X rays were discovered in 1895 by W. C. Roentgen, who called them X rays because their nature was at first unknown. He found them quite by accident when experimenting with vacuum tubes. A week later, he took an X-ray photograph of his wife's hand which clearly revealed her wedding ring and her bones. The photograph electrified the general public and aroused great scientific interest in the new form of radiation. Roentgen called it "X" to indicate it was an unknown type of radiation. The name stuck, although (over Roentgen's objections), many of his colleagues suggested calling them Roentgen rays. They are still occasionally referred to as Roentgen rays in German-speaking countries.


Most applications of X rays are based on their ability to pass through matter. This ability varies with different substances; e.g., wood and flesh are easily penetrated, but denser substances such as lead and bone are more opaque. The penetrating power of X rays also depends on their energy. The more penetrating X rays, known as hard X rays, are of higher frequency and are thus more energetic, while the less penetrating X rays, called soft X rays, have lower energies. X rays that have passed through a body provide a visual image of its interior structure when they strike a photographic plate or a fluorescent screen; the darkness of the shadows produced on the plate or screen depends on the relative opacity of different parts of the body.

X-ray machines produce particles called photons that pass through the human body. The images from an X-ray machine are transferred to an X-ray film or specialized computer. X-rays are performed by qualified radiology technicians, and are mainly used in a clinical setting to help a physician identify any abnormalities in the body, whether they be bone or muscle. X-rays are also extensively used by dentists for diagnostic purposes.

Everyone have a wonderful Tuesday!
