X-Rays: An imaging method that passes radiation through the body onto photographic films allowing the internal
body structure to visible on film. The films are used to diagnose fractures, dislocations, abnormal positioning or
other structural problems in bone. Chiropractors use these films to view the spinal column in the effort to locate
and treat subluxations.
Xeroradiography: An electrostatic image-forming process in which x-rays form an electrostatic image on a
photoconductive insulating medium; the charged image areas attract and hold a fine powder called a toner, and
then the powder image is transferred to paper and fused there by heat. The major advantage of the procedure is
the enhancement between different density of bone and soft tissues, allowing for more detail than conventional
