An X-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation that can be used for medical imaging to enable physicians and medical specialists to determine the appropriate treatments for various internal conditions. X-rays help medical specialists provide an accurate and in-depth diagnosis for conditions like broken bones, joint disorders, cancer, or pneumonia.
This form of X-ray imaging uses digital sensors and a digital image capture device rather than photographic film to take X-rays. Digital radiography increases the efficiency of the X-ray process and provides higher quality and more enhanced imagery. Digital radiography also uses less radiation to produce images, which in turn exposes our patients to lower levels of radiation and reduces the risks associated with conventional X-ray techniques.
During the X-ray process, one of our technicians will show you the appropriate position to places yourself in so that we can capture the necessary view of the affected area(s). We will ask you to remain while the X-ray is being taken in order to ensure that we are able to capture the highest quality imagery. In some circumstances, multiple X-rays in multiple positions may be required in order for us to obtain the best view of the impacted area(s) and provide the most thorough diagnosis.
