X-rays are ionising radiation, generated by an X-ray tube.   The rays are controlled by shielding down a narrow beam, directed towards the part of the body being examined. On the opposite side of the body, an x-ray film is positioned in the path of the x-rays, and is "exposed".   The X-ray film is then processed and an image generated.
