Medical Definition of Wavelength

1. The length of a single cycle of a wave, usually measured from crest-to-crest. For electromagnetic waves, the wavelength determines the type (radio, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X-Ray, gamma-ray) of radiation, in the case of visible light, wavelength determines the colour of the light.
