Wilhelm Röntgen was the first to get x-ray right. X-ray is electromagnetic radiation. Its wavelength is shorter than UV, sunlight. But longer than gamma ray, visible light.
Individual x-ray particles are fired through the body out of a quiet looking machine. It's painless and has no real side effects. Only a moment of exposure is required. It makes a recorded image on the other side. Bone, denser than muscle and skin, appears darker.
Being an X-ray Technician is a serious profession. Helping people who are broken and sick is a great responsibility, and learning to read x-rays are a real skill. Look up x-ray images online. Learn the names of all your bones. Get yourself a good job.
A friend told me that fractures have tripled at Conquest since The Source BMX skate park opened. We might need you sooner than you think, Dr Jack!
