X-Ray

What is it? 

An X-ray is a quick painless test that uses electromagnetic radiation to produce images of the structures inside the body. These images allow our providers to get a better understanding of what’s going on, so they can determine the best treatment plan for you. X-rays are primarily used to evaluate conditions related to bones and joints including fractures and arthritis. However, x-rays can also give the provider information related to possible soft tissue injuries. 

FAQs

Do I need to prepare for an X-ray? 

No. You do not need to prepare for an x-ray. You may be asked to change into a gown or shorts depending on what body part is being x-rayed. You will also be asked to remove any jewelry or metal that may be obscuring the body part being imaged.

Who performs and interprets the X-ray exam? 

An x-ray technologist will perform the x-ray. The provider will then interpret the images, and if necessary, consult a radiologist for their interpretation.

What are the risks in an X-ray? 

Although you are exposed to some x-ray radiation during this imaging study, the amount is minimal. Depending on the injury, x-rays are not performed in the first trimester of pregnancy.
