X-Rays

X-rays are one of the most common types of diagnostic tests used in modern medicine. During an x-ray, electromagnetic waves are aimed at a specific area of the body, taking pictures of the bones and any calcifications within the body’s soft tissues and organs. Patients often visit an urgent care center for x-rays following an accident or after new symptoms have appeared.

Did you know...

X-rays are safe for the average person? In fact, the National Institutes of Health report that most x-rays give off no more radiation than the amount you would receive naturally from the environment over the course of 1 to 2 weeks. Despite the relatively small levels of radiation, some patients may still be instructed to wear lead aprons as a precaution to protect certain areas of the body from exposure during an x-ray.
