5. What radiology is

5.1. science dealing with radiation finding disease and treatment

6. how xray work

6.1. fractured bones, detect injury or infection, or to locate foreign objects in soft tissue

6.2. is produced when a negatively charged electrode is heated by electricity and electrons are released

7. how pet scan works

9.1. breast imaging to detect cancer earlier

9.2. The machine takes x-rays at lower doses than usual x-rays. Because these x-rays don't go through tissue easily, the machine has 2 plates that compress or flatten the breast to spread the tissue apart.
