X-rays are a one-dimensional photo of the spine that distinguish bone from soft tissues (muscle, ligaments and organs).  The bright white objects are the bone and the dark spaces are the soft tissue including air.


The medical analysis of an x-ray includes fractures and dislocations of bone; soft tissue tears and tumors.
