X Ray Waves

Uses

If you have ever broken a bone or sprained any thing, you must be familiar with X-Ray imagining. These machines are the most common use of X-Ray Waves. The Machine works by taking an image of a body part with a piece of photographic film behind it. the image goes through the tissue, but not so easily through the bone which turns the bone a lighter color. It almost magnifies the broken area and allowing radiologists to diagnose and determine your case.


X-Ray waves can be used in warehouses which produce metal goods the waves can almost see through the metal to check the quality and grade of the metal. to decide and see if it meets the companies standards.


X-Ray waves can also be used to find the atom arrangement in crystals. This can help an archaeologist figure out whether he is dealing with a false crystal or real crystal. You will learn more in the videos below about atom arrangement.


If you have ever been to an airport and had your luggage checked, those images are X-Rays. They save lives each and every day and they would show the security guards any bomb gun etc.


These are just some of the important uses X-Rays play in our everyday life.

New X-Ray imaging

Usually X-Ray machines are heavy, not portable, and hard to operate while this new technology is portable, lightweight and easy to operate. This X-Ray imaging device allows you to see soft tissue and not just the bone. this will be able to show us tears not only breaks. By puting our hand inside the circular tube it will read a 3D image of our hand and send it to the radiologists. This process is easier than a normal X-Ray there are so many more benefits to this new device the device was created in 2010. Velásquez García says that while conventional X-ray systems show little or no structure in most soft tissues — including all of the body’s major organ systems — the new system would show these in great detail. A test the team performed with an eye from a cadaver using X-rays from a particle accelerator clearly shows “all the structures, the lens and the cornea,” he says. “In time we are confident our system will be able to achieve such resolution with a far simpler and cheaper device." This device is the future in X-Ray imaging. The equipment we need to develop this has not been released just yet because they have changed the traditional X-Ray imaging device. But will be released when the final tests are run on the tester. The Research, which also include MIT postdoc Frances Hill and graduate student Eric Heubl was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. (Although the finished product is to be portable they have not found a way to accomplish this yet.)

They do not yet have a test on video for the public to use but will be unveiled on Dec. 3 to 6 in London.
