X-rays in the Digital Age

The use of x-ray technology began just before the 20th Century when Wilhelm Röntgen sought to understand the transference of electrical rays through an induction coil. Sounds like what anyone would do on a Sunday afternoon, right? Perhaps, back in the day, this was quite common. From this initial experiment came the discovery that rays could… Read More »
