X-Rays at MidPenChiro

To take an X-ray of the bones, short X-ray pulses are shot through a body with radiographic film behind. The bones absorb the most photons by the photoelectric process, because they are more electron-dense. The X-rays leave a latent image in the photographic film; when it is subsequently developed, the parts of the image corresponding to higher X-ray exposure are dark, leaving a white shadow of bones on the film. :) 

 

Mid Peninsula Chiropractic can take your X-Rays onsite, simplifying your week, and providing you with complete health care.
