But what is an Xray??

Have you ever wondered how an x-ray works? The x-ray machine itself is really just a camera that exposes images within itself. x-rays have electromagnetic waves that are more energetic than your basic everyday camera allowing it to penetrate more material to see through your clothes and skin. When these waves hit the image, it exposes it just the same as a regular camera we all know. Because everything inside you body (bones, fat, muscle, etc) absorb x-rays at different levels, the image that is exposed shows you different structures inside your body because of the different levels of exposure allowed on the image.
