An X-ray is a common imaging test that’s been used for decades. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.
Different types of X-rays are used for different purposes. For example, our specialist doctors may order a mammogram to examine your breasts, or they may order an X-ray with a barium enema to get a closer look at your gastrointestinal tract. The more common X-rays includes: Upper Limbs, Lower Limbs, Vertebral Column, Cranium, Lower Leg and much more.
There are some risks involved in getting an X-ray. But for most people, the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Speak with one of our doctors to learn more about X-rays and the type of X-ray that is right for you.
