X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves. The images show the parts of your body in different shades of black and white because different tissues absorb different amounts of radiation. Calcium in bones absorbs x-rays the most, so bones look white. Fat and other soft tissues absorb less and look gray. Air absorbs the least, so lungs look black. The most familiar use of x-rays is checking for fractures (broken bones), but also a chest x-rays can spot pneumonia and mammograms to look for breast cancer.
