X-rays are usually the first medical imaging procedure requested by our physicians for diagnostic purposes, however, they can also be used to check on the progression of a condition or injury, or to assess the progress following treatment.
X-ray is one of the oldest and most frequently used forms of medical imaging and is an extremely simple, painless, and relatively quick medical test. Traditional X-rays use film to capture images of the body’s internal structures, however, with advances in technology, digital radiography has become a more efficient and safer method of producing diagnostic X-ray images.
Following the X-ray scan, a radiologist will view and interpret the results and will send them back to the doctor. In the case of a digital X-ray, the results can be stored electronically and retrieved by physicians via a secure portal usually within 24 hours of the exam.
