I’m planning on doing a science fair project on x-ray pictures. I want to create a computer program that can separate certain wavelengths of light from the x-ray image. I need to know how the x-rays are converted to the image, for example, as in an x-ray machine used in medicine. For example, after knowing the wave absorption and emission patterns of muscle, could I use a computer to detect the resulting “color” on the x-ray image and create a separate “layer” image of just that muscle tissue by detecting and separating it out from the original image? Could you please point me in the right direction for the type of books or information I need to look for? Are there any image analysis programs you know of that I can use online?
