X-Rays are a type of electromagnetic waves. and they play an important role in dentistry and orthopedic investigation. Many individuals undergo an X-ray to allow medical professionals to gain a better idea of what is going on inside someone so appropriate treatment can be prescribed and provided.

We also see gamma radiation, a higher energy form of electromagnetic radiation, used in treating some types of cancer. When we hear that someone has undergone "radiation therapy" in an attempt to stop or control cancer, the gamma ray source is often what is being referred to. Other types of radiation can be used, but gamma ray treatments are still common.
