Precautions while using X Rays
A radiograph is an X ray image obtained by placing a part of the patient in front of an X ray detector and then illuminating it with a short X ray pulse. Bones contain much calcium, which due to its relatively high atomic number absorbs x rays efficiently. This reduces the amount of X rays reaching the detector in the shadow of the bones, making them clearly visible on the radiograph.
