Im surprised you didn't simply use Google for this one.

Radiography refers to the use of ionizing radiation for the acquisition of high quality images for diagnostic purpose, or for the treatment of malignant disease.

In non technical jargon, radiography is the firing of radiation through a person to create an image of the persons inside (guts and bones, etc).

The same radiation can also be used to 'attack' cancers within the body through a similar process in a separate discipline called 'therapeutic radiography'.
