Radiography is a branch of science that uses X-ray radiation to obtain a picture of internal organs of the human body on film or detector plate. They are used to create images of internal organs or for inspection via different types of equipment such as CT scan modality, X-ray radiography machine (computed or digital), mammography, fluoroscopy, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan, dental radiography, ortho pan tomography (OPG), etc. Further understanding of the interaction of X-rays with the matter, and radiographic image quality, would help in elucidating the role of different X-ray equipment in diagnosis and inspection. Radio-diagnosis, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy remain strong pillars for inspection, diagnosis and treatment delivery. Recent advances in artificial intelligence in radiography such as computed tomography have bought revolution in the field by assisting in quicker and effective diagnosis. Further its applications in industrial radiography, food irradiation and thermography are also expounded in the chapter.
