An X-Ray is a way of getting an image of your bones and other tissues using minimum radiation. X-rays are a form of energy that comes from a machine (like an X-ray machine). When X-rays are aimed at some part of your body, they travel through your body and hit a special type of film. The film records the X-rays as they pass through your body. This makes an image that shows the inside of your body. X-rays are very useful for looking at how bones are broken and setting them correctly during surgery.
