What is an X-Ray?

An X-ray, or x-radiation, is an imaging test that relies on small amounts of electromagnetic radiation to allow medical professionals to view soft tissues, muscles, and bones. With an x-ray, our team can assess numerous medical concerns such as:

  • Broken, fractured, or sprained bones
  • Examine areas of discomfort and pain
  • Monitor certain disease progression, such as osteoporosis
  • Check-up on treatment plans
  • Locate and treat blood clots, cancerous tumors, and more

This radiographic technology dates back to the late 1800s and is still developing today. Modern x-ray machines use lower doses of radiation while producing more detailed images, making them safer and more effective for diagnostic purposes.

What Happens During an X-Ray?

The exact steps involved in taking an x-ray vary depending on the type of x-ray being performed. The exam can take anything from five to thirty minutes and may require you to stand, sit, or lie down, depending on which area of the body is x-rayed.

Some x-ray exams require one photographic film, while others require several. Our team will let you know how many x-rays are being taken ahead of time and provide you with clear instructions, such as whether to hold your breath or not to move your head.

How to Prepare for an X-Ray Exam

Most bone x-ray exams do not require any preparation beforehand. However, other x-ray exams may involve some preparation. We’ll provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your exam to produce clear images.

Our team will also verify that these instructions were followed at the time of your x-ray exam. We do our best to ensure that we take the highest quality images possible to aid in an accurate diagnosis—even if that means rescheduling your appointment.

When you are ready for your scan, you will be asked to wear one of our gowns and remove any jewelry that may interfere with the x-ray machine. In any event, it is crucial to alert our staff if you are pregnant, as this can affect treatment.
