Several invisible phenomena, which are part of our daily lives, are being used consciously or non-consciously to reveal features hidden from eyesight. One such phenomena is penetrating radiation in the form of neutrons, gammas- or X-rays which are continuously being utilized to reveal hidden features, unseen and undetected by the normal human eye of e.g. precious artifacts, fossils and the human body through radiography and tomography. The basic concepts and unique applications of these processes to unwrap the hidden are being discussed and outlined – not to be missed
