X-Rays

What is an X-Ray?

An x-ray is a quick, painless scan that uses a small amount of radiation to take pictures of structures within the body. X-rays are particularly accurate at taking pictures of bones and metal.

How Can I Prepare?

Generally, you will need to undress or wear a gown for an x-ray. You may also need to ingest or be injected with a contrast medium to get more accurate x-ray images. X-rays are done very quickly in an open format, which usually removes concerns for patients with claustrophobia or anxiety. You can go about your daily activities as normal before and after an x-ray.

What Can I Expect?

X-rays are non-invasive and completely painless. Pictures are taken with a low-level of radiation and are taken very quickly. You will be positioned on a table by your technician in such a way to get the most accurate picture possible of the body part being scanned. Your technician may use pillows or sandbags to position you more comfortably. After the scan, you can resume your normal activities right away.
