Conventional Radiography

In the conventional X-ray examination in an X-ray device generates an X-ray beam through the patient and onto a piece of film or to a detector (memory) in order to produce an image of the incoming radiation amount. Various soft tissues attenuate the x-ray photons different, depending on the fabric density – the closer (radiopaque) the tissue, the whiter the image. The spectrum of the radiation density ranges from metal (radio-opaque, white) on the cortical bone (less white), muscle tissue and fluid (gray), fat (dark gray), to air or gas (black, d. H. Radiolucent).

The conventional radiography includes the use of X-ray radiation, wherein the term “simple X-ray” is sometimes used in order to distinguish them from X-rays with other techniques (eg. B. CT).

Radiolucent). Using the conventional X-ray diagnostics Radiography is the most readily available imaging modality. Typically, it is the first imaging methods to evaluate the limbs, chest and sometimes the spine and abdomen. These areas contain important structures with densities that are different from those of the neighboring tissue. For example, a radiography is the best investigation for the detection of: fractures: White bones are easy to see because they stand apart from the gray soft tissues. Pneumonia: inflammatory exudate that fills the lungs, is easily visible as it settles from the adjacent beam permeable airspaces. Intestinal obstruction: Advanced, air-filled bowel loops are visible amid the surrounding soft tissue.
