How X-Ray Radiography Works
Important Uses of X-Ray Imaging
Other common users of X-ray imaging include the diagnosis of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis, scoliosis, back pain, neck pain, bone age, as well as conducting skeletal surveys for multiple myeloma.
Potential Dangers from Using X-ray Radiation for Medical Imaging
There is a significantly higher risk to younger children and to unborn babies. X-rays are normally not used for pregnant women unless the benefit outweigh the risks. The reason is that younger children have a much higher rate of cell-division which can greatly magnify the effect of DNA damage.
