How are x rays beneficial to people who have only one tumor in their body?
there is a minimum exposure of radiation,with any x-ray procedure.but, the results are well worth,whether it reveals a problem or not.just about any part, of the body can x-rayed.however, the brain is not usually x-rayed.that test would be a cat,or brain scan. the x-rays are 1st tests ordered, by a Dr.,if the patients' complaint warrants it.a broken leg,severe pain in abdomen or stomach.the Dr., or nurse,will ask questions as to what you have been doing that day? what did you or did you not eat? any unusual activity? has this happened before?,etc. just to be sure,and depending on the problem,tests will be ordered.blood wor,(cbc),checks for over 100 possibilities,EKG,if the heart could eb in question and an x-ray.they can be done bed-side, or in the radiology dept.the x-ray can only eliminate some maladies.it's like an outline, of something, if anything inside your body.they used to be the only thing medicine had.now, there is the cat scan, the next test usually ordered.it's more in-depth and precise,them the MRI,magnetic resonance imaging.just about the top test for locating a reason for the complaint.even more perceptive,in-depth and precise with results.there is a PET scan.usually only used if the other tests don't warrant info, the Dr. thinks may be there.i think my explanation would anwered the question about how are x-rays beneficial.better to find the problem, than not.if a tumor is large enough,or there is a mass,it will appear,on the MRI or PET scan.it can explain just exactly what kind of tumor it is and where located.you can have a tumor,or mass and it can be benign.depending on where it's located and what the Dr. thinks,fluid can be drained,by injection, and tested for cancer.from that result the medical team will know the course to follow.

In a recent x-ray what looks like a tumor is on L3 and have also been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis Any link between the two?
Answer . \nAnswer...\n. \nThere are cancers that secrete hormones that can affect bone metabolism, just like normal hormones. There are also some treatments that can have an effect on hormones such as supressing male hormones [in males] to combat prostate cancer. \n. \nThe cancers that secret…e hormones that would effect bone metabolism are pretty rare, however...\n. \nThe best thing would be for your practitioner to refer you to an endocrinologist who can order appropriate blood tests to determine the cause of your osteoporosis... And who can manage the condition.\n. \nHope things work out well for you! ( Full Answer )
Answer: . X-ray's use radioactive methods. All proper medical x-rays have been tested and will not cause harm, however, excessive exposure to radiation can cause cells to malform which causes cancer.

Through soft tissue yes but not through cartilage and bone, this is why they show up on the images :)

It starts as one cell, and grows into a mass of cells that do not stop replicating (this is the growth of a tumor). Tumors can either be malignant or benign. A tumor is defined as "an abnormal new mass of tissue that serves no purpose" by the Princeton WordNet.
bcz x rays have very very small wave length..... Ans: X-rays are diffracted by crystal because wave length of X-rays and interplanar spacing in the crystals is of the same order, (angstrom, Ã ), so it satisfies Bragg condition for diffraction . 2dsin Î¸ = n Î» . Where n is the integ…er and determined by the order given, Î» is the wave length of the x-rays, d is the spacing between the planes in the atomic lattice, and Î¸ is the angle between the incident ray and the scattering planes (diffracted angle).

Actually, x-rays are bad for your body because they use a lot of radiation to get the picture. But I guess they help people by showing doctors and patients bones in the body, whether they are broken or not.
Technically, any part can. But there are those who will object to having their brains or reproductive organs imaged, especially if they are alive at the time.
yes you can, eg. call of duty has 12 players in one match or 19 if your just playing with friends and if you have one account two people can use it but not at the same time
In general, the shorter the wavelength (the higher the frequency) of X-rays, the more energy the radiation has. That means that shorter wavelength X-rays have more penetrating power. It should be noted that X-rays are also a form of ionizing radiation; these electromagnetic waves have the energy to …break chemical bonds. And they will to some extent, with the shorter wavelength rays doing the most damage.. In a normal X-ray, the radiation dosage is low, and the negative effects minimized. The up side of the use of the X-ray makes it a great diagnostic tool for the medical investigator. The cost benefit ratio is one with a very low cost associated with it, and it's long on the benefits. If you break a bone and go into the ER, the emergency room physician will order an X-ray pretty quick to see what's up. A link can be found below. ( Full Answer )
When ruling out a stress fracture is it considered standard operating procedure to order x-rays of both legs when shin pain is reported in only one?
This would depend on your age, mechanism of injury and initial complaint. Would need more information.
they can cause damage to living cells which can cause serious illnesses, also cause raditation to enter the body
All tumors are caused by disruption of a cell's normal regulatory systems. Brain cancers are no different, they arise from cells that can no longer regulate their own growth, leading them to multiply in an uncontrolled way. . In discussing the efeects on the body of a brain tumor, it is impossible …to say without knowing what kind of brain tumor it is, and where on the brain it is located. ( Full Answer )
becasuse it helps them see if there is anything broken or wrong in ur body
Plain film xrays are able to detect some tumors. However, tumors are usually soft tissue which plain film xrays cannot detect as well. CT scans use xrays to detect soft tissue tumors.
Wave length and frequency. In light also is reflected,our bodies have density and skin which is pigmented allowing the light to be absorbed. X-ray's are more of magnetic field or radioactive and respond to bodies electric energy, atoms of which we are composed,its cellular to bones to brain.
x-rays have changed peoples lifes in many ways for example people can now find out whats wrong with them :) .
It is a really good idea to cover reproductive organs duringX-rays, and we do. Lead blankets are always available in the X-raysuite, and the staff knows where to put them and why.
except bones the human body is transparent to x-rays. but the bones block the x-rays.
X-rays pass through your soft muscle, but can't pass through the hard bone, forming an image with only your skeleton seen in detail, while there are thin traces of your muscle.
X-ray tubes are just a convenient way of producing x-rays. The tube contains a vacuum, which means that the accelerated electrons won't accidentally bump into any other particles and be scattered or slowed down before reaching the target.
Well according to my math homework the answer is " I wonder what he saw in her ".
The amount of energy the beam contains determines how much radiation will go through an object to hit the cassette. This energy level is determined by the person operating the machine and must be calibrated to the size and density of the object being viewed. The x rays will not penetrate dense objec…ts as well as less dense ones, because of this the areas where the beam passed through dense bone will remain unexposed on the film.

An x-ray is used as a non-invasive way to visualize the inside of your body.
because tiny electrons are travelling so fast and when they get stopped (by bone) an x-ray is produced,

There are plenty of celestial bodies that emit xrays - while othersscatter, reflect, or alter the energy of electromagnetic radiationinto the x-ray range. Sources that emit x-rays include pulsars orneutron stars, the accretion disks of black holes, stars -particularly ones with certain types of comp…anions, stellarremnants such as from supernovae, entire galaxies (with and withoutactive nuclei) and to some extent, even the universe as a whole;though some of this is generally attributed to mechanisms whichheat gas. There are even x-ray sources within the solar system,including the Moon, since not all of its observed x-ray emission issimply reflected from the Sun. ( Full Answer )
Not unless there is something wrong with the x-ray tube or if the person has an extreme difference in measure between either sides of the chest.
X-rays look though your skin and see if you have done anything wrong to your body.
Not entirely. They harm your body to a degree but to a very minimal degree. X-ray's should be prevented if possible but are otherwise not really harmful of corse x-ray are are safe they do not harm ur body
it help other people cause they could see bones identifying what the case may be
They cover the rest of you body so the harmful waves don't go in your body everywhere there doesn't need to be. X-rays are harmful to your body and that's why they hid behind the wall.
Xrays have smaller wavelengths, and can only been seen from the shadows it makes on xray paper. X-rays have a shorter wavelength than ultraviolet, thus making them smaller photons, hard x-radiation has a wavelength around .01 nanometers and ultraviolet has a wavelength around 10 nanometers at …the shortest wavelength. This means it is easier for the smaller x-rays to penetrate the human body than ultraviolet wavelengths. 1000 nanometers = 1 micron, 1000000 microns = 1 millimeter ( Full Answer )
Chest x rays include views of the lungs, heart, small portions of the gastrointestinal tract, thyroid gland and the bones of the chest area.
By definition a lethal dose of x-rays would cause death. Prior to death, the person would show signs of radiation poisoning including nausea, vomiting, hair loss, bloody vomiting (hemoptysis), bloody diarrhea (hematochezia), dizziness, low blood pressure (hypotension), slow wound healing, uncoord…inated movement (ataxia), and seizures. In practical purposes, a lethal dose of x-rays is nearly impossible since modern x-rays have such low levels of radiation. For instance a single x-ray view of the chest is only 0.05mSv, which is the same amount of radiation you absorb from the ambient environment in 5 days. So, your risk of developing cancer, is only increased as much as it were to be if you were 5 days older than your real age. For reference a lethal dose of radiation is approximately 30 Sv. So to get a lethal dose of radiation through x-rays you would need to get more than 600 x-rays in one sitting. ( Full Answer )
It is not. However, if there may be a 'secondary' tumor in the brain (something that has spread to the brain), it would be wise to start with a chest x-ray to look for the 'primary' tumor.
Well dear, if you were ever to break a bone or swallow something totally ridiculous like key, an X-ray would show where exactly you broke the bone, or if you broke it at all, or where the key was currently in you at the time.
Yes. There is no essential difference between living bodies and cadavers/corpses as far as X raying.
No, tumors can be found in other parts of your body as well including: Breasts, your lungs, uterus, prostate, legs, arms, etc.. Tumors can show up pretty much anywhere.
Greek yogurt is of nutritional benefit to one's body because it provides protein and calcium. Compared to regular yogurt, it provides more protein and less calcium.
they could do a three view mandibule, ct is much better for any facial bones though
X-rays have the proper wavelength and energy to damage DNA. Damaged DNA can cause unwanted mutations like cancer or sweet powers like in the X-men.
They allow doctors to take photographic-like images of bones (and certain other things including many metals) allowing them to dectect something wrong with them.
X-rays only show up dense areas in the body such as bone. An x-ray may show tumors in the lung as they show up as dense white patches and they can show bone erosion in people with bone tumours but they can't show up tumours which are the same density as the surrounding organs such as liver or kidney… tumours. Similarly some cancers are carried in the blood or lymphatic system and these will also not be distinguishable on an x-ray. Other procedures can be used to outline these tumours, such as the use of x-ray dyes, CT scans or ultrasounds. ( Full Answer )
Radio waves (along with magnetism) are used for that purpose instead of x-rays in MRI machines. x-rays are absorbed by the body differently than radio waves, so it depends on what in the body is being looked at.
They manage perfectly well. The body compensates for the loss of a lung - by making the remaining organ work a little harder.
No, people can not have X-ray vision. Humans do not have the ability to see through objects like an x-ray machine does. There use to be glasses that were marketed as giving you X-ray vision but they never truly worked. Not naturally, no.
Yes. X-rays have energy, and any x-rays absorbed by the human body would be converted to heat. Or most of that energy would be converted to heat, at any rate.
Lethal dose means you die from it. . hair falls out, gums start to bleed. internal organ failure. . extreme cases, damage similar to heat burns.
