WHAT IS A X-RAY?
X-ray, also known as Radiography, is the fastest and easiest way for a Radiologist to view bones, the lungs and certain soft tissues.
It can also be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of diseases, including osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer. Unlike most forms of radiation, X-rays can pass through body tissue, making it possible to provide images of internal structures without performing surgery.
What to Expect?
Often times a X-ray takes no longer than 5 minutes, and is performed standing up or lying down depending on area of concern.
