X-Ray Interactions With Atoms Can Trigger Tissue Damage

X-rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiations comprise a spectrum of radiations that all share a common property: they are propagated through space and matter in the form of small packets or bundles of energy called photons. The various types of electromagnetic radiations are ordered on a spectrum of varying energies. Radio waves (communication waves) are found on the low-energy end of this spectrum. Visible light is found toward the center of the elect more...
