Radiodensity

Jesse Russell

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Radiodensity (or radiopacity) refers to the relative inability of electromagnetic radiation, particularly X-rays, to pass through a particular material. Radiolucency indicates greater transparency or "transradiancy" to X-ray photons. Materials that inhibit the passage of electromagnetic radiation are called radiodense, while those that allow radiation to pass more freely are referred to as radiolucent. The term refers to the relatively opaque white appearance of dense meterials or substances on radiographic imaging studies, compared with the relatively darker appearance of less dense materials.
