Radiography (X-ray)

What is an X-ray?

The most frequently used diagnostic tool, images are created by passing controlled amounts of radiation through the body and capturing the resulting shadows on a digital image receptor.

Who Should NOT Have an X-ray Exam?

If you are pregnant or may be pregnant, consult your physician prior to the exam.


What Should I Expect During an X-ray Exam?

Your position, standing or lying down, will be determined based upon the type of X-ray exam being performed. You may be asked to hold your breath and remain still for a few moments.
