An X-Ray is a non-invasive, painless procedure used to image inside of the body, and to visualise the human skeleton. X-rays travel through the body at different rates due to different parts of the body (e.g. bones, fat, soft issue) absorbing the radiation at different speeds, this allows an image of the body to be constructed. Denser parts of the body appear white whereas soft tissues such as the lungs appear dark. X-Rays are an extremely common investigation, and are used to visualise that which cannot be seen with the human eye, e.g. bone fractures, lung problems, heart problems, and certain types of cancer.
