* X-radiation (composed of X-rays) is a form of electromagnetic radiation. X-rays have a wavelength in the range of 0.01 to 10 nanometers. In many languages, X-radiation is called Röntgen radiation, after German Physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923), who is generally credited as its discoverer. Röntgen's original paper, "On A New Kind Of Rays" (Über eine neue Art von Strahlen) was published on 28 December 1895. On 5 January 1896, an Austrian newspaper reported Röntgen's discovery of a new type of radiation. Röntgen was awarded an honorary Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Würzburg after his discovery. He published a total of three papers on X-rays between 1895 and 1897. Today, Röntgen is considered the father of diagnostic radiology, the medical specialty which uses imaging to diagnose disease.
