Physics applies to health



I've always been curious to if physics applied to health and the importance of it. So, while researching this I found that physics does apply to health in many different ways. For example, if someone breaks their bones, doctors use x-rays which are a product of physics. Another medical use of physics is when a woman is given an ultrasound, this is a form of physics because you're watching the process of physics in action. Also one of physics other creations, the defibrillator, can be the difference between life or death of a patient suffering from cardiac arrest. Finally, Physics deals heavily to lasers including laser eye surgery. These are just a few developments that physics has contributed to medicine and without it people would become very sick, or dead.
