Wihelm Conrad Roentgen

Radiograph also know as X-Ray

We offer X-rays on site (If medically necessary).

X-Rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen by accident. He named his discovery 'X-Rays' because X stood for an unknown quantity. The first clinical Radiograph was taken by Professor Roentgen on November 8, 1895 of his wife's (Anna Bertha Roentgen) hand in Wurzburg, Germany.
X-Ray was introduced to the chiropractic profession in 1910 by B.J. Palmer, president of the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Since the discovery of X-Rays we have come a long way in further developing radiographs into a clear image which we now use for diagnostic purposes in the medical field.
