X-Ray

The most common and widely used medical imaging technology.

An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose medical conditions.

Understanding x-rays

An x-ray is a noninvasive and painless medical imaging test that is used to diagnose and monitor a variety of bone, chest, abdominal and soft tissue disorders. X-rays use a small dose of ionizing radiation, which is used to produce two-dimensional pictures of body structures.

Who Needs An X-Ray?

If you have a concern that you have gone to their doctor about and they have more questions, an x-ray may be recommended to gather more information. The most well-known use is for suspected broken bones.

X-rays are used for a range of other possible conditions, such as chest x-rays for conditions affecting your lungs. They may be the baseline test to a series of more tests if needed.

X-Ray Additional Information

It is important to us to empower you with knowledge regarding x-rays so you can feel comfortable and prepared for your appointment.
X-rays are a form of energy, similar to light and radio waves. They are used to produce images of the structures inside the body, most commonly bones.

Evidence supports that the radiation x-ray is extremely low and comparable to radiation that we are exposed to as part of daily living. The benefits of x-rays outweigh any possible side effects, which are very unlikely.
