Radiography is "examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes by means of x-rays or gamma rays, recording the image on a sensitized surface (such as photographic film)."[1]

Types of radiography

  • Tomography which is "imaging methods that result in sharp images of objects located on a chosen plane and blurred images located above or below the plane"[2] and computed tomography in which a computer helps reconstruct the images.
  • Fluoroscopy which is "production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen."[3]
