Radiography – an image of the inside of the body

Radiography, also known as X-ray, is a screening of the body using X-rays, which shows an image of the inside. This method is mostly used when bone fractures are suspected. It was discovered as early as 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen and is still considered a proven method, which has been significantly further developed over the years. In this way, a diagnosis can be made quickly and very precisely and further measures can be taken for a speedy recovery.

This technique is used in the modern world both for X-raying the human body and for so-called scanning of goods (e.g. at airports or scan trucks).
