X-ray uses electromagnetic radiation to make images of your bones, teeth and internal organs. Simply put, X-rays allow doctors to take pictures of the inside of your body. One of the oldest forms of medical imaging, X-ray is a simple, painless medical test that can help your doctor provide you with appropriate treatment, even in emergency situations. It’s a fast, easy and safe way for your doctor to view and assess conditions ranging from broken bones to cancer.
X-Ray imaging is useful to diagnose bone injury and disease, such as fractures, bone infections, arthritis and cancer
Because X-Ray imaging is so fast and easy, it is particularly useful in emergency diagnosis and treatment
Modern X-Ray techniques use only a fraction of the radiation required in the early days of radiology.
Special care is taken during X-Ray examinations to ensure safety for the patient by shielding organs with a lead apron.
