About X-Ray Technology

Traditional medical x-ray technology (radiography) uses electromagnetic waves to capture interior images of the human body. It has been used by the medical community since the invention of the x-ray machine in 1895. Modern day x-ray equipment offers significantly improved quality and safety. X-rays remain a valuable, time-tested diagnostic tool for certain medical conditions and are often a “first step” in the diagnostic process.
