X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. X-ray imaging uses a small dose of radiation to produce imaging. It is the fastest and easiest way for a healthcare provider to view and assess the chest, bones and other structures of the body.
Most x-ray exams take less than 15 minutes.
You will be positioned on an exam table. For the best quality images, you will be asked to remain as still as possible during the exam. The technologist may reposition you for another view and the process is repeated.
When your x-rays are completed, you will be asked to wait while the technologist checks the quality of the images.
Your images will be interpreted by one of our board-certified radiologists. The findings will be sent to your healthcare provider who will then contact you to discuss the results.
