Also known as Radiography, X-Ray is an excellent way for a Radiologist to view bones, the lungs and certain soft tissues. X-Ray is most commonly used to assess broken bones, playing a key role in orthopedic imaging for surgery and sports-related injuries, as well as many other diagnostic purposes.
Generally there is no preparation for an X-ray, although you may be asked to change into a gown to eliminate any interference from metal objects on clothing.
A Center for Medical Imaging Radiologist will interpret the X-rays and provide the patient's physician with the results of the exam.
