  1. 1. • Presentación X-Ray or Röntgen rays Wilhelm Röntgen's first "medical" X-ray, of his wife's hand, taken on 22 December 1895
  2. 2. Introduction • X-rays are electromagnetic waves of short wavelength capable of penetrating some thickness of matter. • X-ray is an important technology to the modern world. X-ray is used for various purposes like Medical and Security. • Medical X-rays are produced by letting a stream of fast electrons come to a sudden stop at a metal plate.
  3. 3. Medical Use (Diagnosis) • X-ray is a boon to medical science. • X-rays are useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system as well as for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. • X-rays may also be used to detect pathology such as gallstones (which are rarely radiopaque) or kidney stones. • X-rays are also commonly used in dentistry, as X- ray imaging is useful in the diagnoses of common oral problems, such as cavities.
  4. 4. Medical Use (Treatment) • The use of X-rays as a treatment is known as radiation therapy and is largely used for the management of cancer; it requires higher radiation energies than for imaging alone. • Radiation therapy is commonly applied to the cancerous tumor because of its ability to control cell growth by damaging them.
