X-ray is a medical imaging technique that uses high-energy electromagnetic radiation to create images of internal structures of the body. X-rays are a type of ionizing radiation that can pass through the body and are absorbed differently by different tissues, creating a contrast between different structures.

During an X-ray procedure, a patient is positioned between an X-ray machine and a digital detector. The X-ray machine emits a controlled amount of radiation that passes through the body and interacts with a detector, creating a two-dimensional image of the internal structures.

X-rays are commonly used to diagnose bone fractures, lung problems, and other medical conditions that affect the internal organs and tissues. X-ray imaging is quick, painless, and non-invasive, making it a commonly used diagnostic tool in medical settings.
