    a photograph taken using X-rays, showing the inside of one's body

    In a dictionary, it says:

    X-ray noun

    1. ...
    2. a photograph taken using X-rays, showing the inside of one's body
    ----
    Does it mean this?

    a photograph taken using X-rays, which shows the inside of one's body

    'which' means 'a photograph'.

    Would you be so kind as to help me?
    Thanks!

    PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.
    I'm not a teacher. Please feel free to correct me. :)

    Yes, it does. However, you cannot exclude the x-rays from the definition because, without them, you would only have a photo of the outside of the body.
