A heterogenous beam of Xrays is produced by an Xray generator, and is projected toward an object. Xrays were put to diagnostic use very early, before the dangers of ionizing radiation were discovered. SInce then, radiation protection products have found their place on the market, protecting people from the threats of radiation.
A week after discovering the Xray, Wilhelm Rongten took an Xray photo of his wife’s hand, which revealed her wedding ring and her bones. The first dental Xrays were made the same year they were discovered, which was 1895. Today, lead aprons, lead glasses and other Xray accessories keep people safe from the damage the radiation can inflict upon them.
Interestingly, Xray technology is so powerful that it has shown there are at least more versions of the Mona Lisa under the visible one. Xrays are not toys, and they should be used only by Xray technicians and people trained in using Xrays. Radiation protection products like leaded glasses are a must have for people who expect prolonged exposure to Xray radiation and Xray technology.
