Hello everyone, I really don't have any idea of how the x-rays work actually. Someone told me when light goes through that place becomes dark in the x-ray or something. Anyway if anyone can give me an explanation of how an X-ray work that would be awesome. x ray----------man-------board The x-ray prints on the board right. You can't see the depth in a normal x-ray right? Does everything get printed on the same plane or can you see layers. Organs that are front of others etc. Also what do they mean by antero-posterior x-ray or postero-anterior x-ray? If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks a lot!!
