X-ray imaging

 

A Diagnostic X-ray is a quick, painless and noninvasive exam that produces images of the anatomy inside the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

X-rays use a small amount of ionizing radiation to generate pictures of the inside of the body. Different parts of the body absorb the X-rays in varying degrees. Bone absorbs much of the radiation, while soft tissue allows more of the X-rays to pass through it. As a result, bones appear white, soft tissue shows up in shades of gray and air appears black.

Doctors order X-rays for many reasons, including:

  • Lung disease
  • Fractured bones or joint dislocations
  • Scoliosis, disc disease or other spinal defects
  • Arthritis
  • Locating foreign bodies
  • Abdominal pathology, including kidney stones and obstruction
  • Upper GI series
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Chest X-rays
