Maddie's Do You Know?

X-Ray and Sock

Episode 20 X-Ray and Sock



In today’s episode, Maddie explores how our body works. She visits a children’s hospital to find out what happens when we have an X-ray. She meets James, who has broken his arm, as well as a radiographer. We see what happens when we have an X-ray and learn how the X-ray machine takes a picture of the bones inside our body before saving the picture on a special machine. Next, Maddie heads to a factory where they make socks in lots of different colours out of yarn. Maddie uses her slow-motion camera to give us a special view when the sock-turning machine sucks in the socks and flips them out the right way around. They look like wiggly snakes!
