X-ray. Radiologist discussing an X-ray of the chest and shoulder with a patient. Radiology is a diagnostic technique in which low doses of X-rays are passed through the body tissues and cast onto a film or a fluorescent screen. The resulting images, also known as radiographs, are examined by a radiologist and any structural changes in the bones and organs are identified. Here the radiologist (left) is discussing her diagnosis with a patient, indicating areas of concern on the radiograph.
