+What is an X-Ray?

An x-ray is a noninvasive exam that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-ray involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce images of the area of interest. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

+How do I prepare for my exam?

Tell your doctor if you are, or suspect you might be pregnant. If you suspect to be pregnant a pregnancy test will be required before the technologist is to take the x-rays. You will need a doctor’s order. Call our office to schedule. Please wear comfortable clothing free of metal. Avoid underwire bras, girdles, metal snaps and pins.

+What can I expect during my exam?

A registered technologist will discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you might have. You will be taken to the exam room, where you will be positioned for the x-ray – either standing, sitting or lying down on an x-ray table, depending on which part of your body is to be imaged. Additional x-rays may be taken, if need. You may be asked to hold your breath.

+What will happen after my X-Ray?

Your examination will be reviewed by the radiologist, after the exam has been completed. Your referring physician will be sent a detailed final report within 24 hours. You will receive copies of your films with you leave our facility. If you would like a copy of your results mailed to you please inform our staff.
