Does hair bleach cause any damage to hair?

Yes, it can damage the hair. It is for this reason that hair bleach should only be applied by a trained professional. They can raise the hair cuticle and cause a rapid loss of moisture. Other side effects include brittle hair, loss of elasticity, hair breakage. The amount of hair damage because of bleaching depends on the level of colour change and is especially damaging when changing the colour from a light shade to a dark shade since in these cases the bleach would be left for a longer period of time on the hair.

User, Level 7 Contributor
Not every issue can be found using an ultrasound. Conditions or abnormalities that don't manifest as a structural or functional abnormality like an abnormal heartbeat, mental retardation etc may be missed. Additionally, the ability to detect abnormalities in a fetus would depend on factors like

  • the amount of amniotic fluid around the fetus.

  • the size of the fetus.

  • the body structure of the mother.

  • the type of equipment in use as well as

  • the skill and experience level of the operator.

What is digital X-ray?

1 user answered

Ram Kumar, Rajnandgaon
User, Level 7 Contributor
In an analog x-ray, a light sensitive film is exposed to the X-rays and followed by this, the film is developed. The digital X-ray has modernized this system and uses a digital detector system instead of the usual photographic light-sensitive film used in analog X-rays. So during the Xray session, the X-rays are directed to a particular part of the body so other parts of the body are not exposed to any radiation.

The digital detector system on opposite sides captures the incoming X-rays which varies in strength and converts them into electrical signals which are then shown on the computer. because there is no time needed for film development The  X-ray images can immediately be collected after the exam a compared t the traditional system.
