One day, a daughter was puzzled about an assignment, so she asked her mother, a former radiologic technologist, what the answer to her queries in his thoughts was.

Hey, mom, you are former radiologic technologist, right? When you was in your 20's?
Yes, sweetheart, why did you ask? Do you have questions connected to my old job?
Okay, may I know what is it? Maybe, I can help.
Do you know how EM radiations are used in the technology of telecommunications, medicine, and other fields in order for them to function or work?
Let's see what I can remember.
Oh, I recall telecommunications devices such as cell phones. When you turn on your phone, it releases radio waves, which are made up of radio frequency energy. It is unable to function without the use of radio waves.
What about medicine, Mom?
Other doctors utilize gamma rays as a treatment to kill cancer cells in your body, but as far as I know, there is nothing that can kill cancer except gamma rays.
Electromagnetic energy also has the ability to penetrate much more deeply into the body than light. This makes electromagnetic acoustic imaging an excellent technology for diagnosing a whole range of tumors despite their location..
Wow! That was awesome! I didn't know that! Thank you, mom!
You're welcome, my sweetheart! I hope it helps! Don't hesitate to ask if there are more questions bothering you.
