What is an X-ray exam?
An X-ray is a form of diagnostic imaging that uses a small dose of ionizing radiation, which passes harmlessly through your body, to produce a clear image of the structures inside your body. X-rays are adept at giving doctors an inside look at your bones and teeth.
Doctors use X-ray imaging to diagnose ailments like broken bones, joint sprains, dislocations, arthritis. X-rays play a significant role in diagnosing injury, and musculoskeletal trauma.
