The main type of radiation used for the treatment of skin cancers are x-rays. X-rays can be generated with different energy levels. High energy x-rays are able to penetrate deep into the body, and are used to treat internal cancers.

An x-ray is an image created on photographic film or electronically on a digital system to diagnose illnesses and injuries. During this type of medical imaging procedure, an x-ray machine is used to take pictures of the inside of the body.

The x-rays pass through various parts of the body to produce images of tissues, organs, and bones. X-ray experiments in pulmonary tuberculosis proved useless.

Aside from the medical profession losing faith in the ability of x-ray therapy, the public increasingly viewed it as a dangerous type of treatment. This resulted in a period of pessimism about the use of x-rays, which lasted from about to or Radium therapy.

X-rays and gamma rays can cause a number of other problems besides cancer. What problems occur depend upon the radiation dose, the timing of the exposure, and what areas of the body are exposed. Exposure to high doses of radiation over a short period of time can cause radiation sickness (sometimes called radiation poisoning or acute radiation.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease that primarily involves the joints. RA causes damage mediated by cytokines, chemokines, and metalloproteases. Characteristically, peripheral joints (eg, wrists, metacarpophalangeal joints) are symmetrically inflamed, leading to progressive destruction of articular structures.

The goals of treatment in people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are controlling symptoms, minimizing joint damage, and improving quality of life. Treatment is discussed in more detail separately.
