X-rays use small doses of radiation to create pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are especially helpful for bone fractures and joint injuries. They can also be used to find an infection, locate tumors, look for fluid in the lungs, locate the cause of an intestinal obstruction and diagnose heart and large blood vessel problems.
How You Benefit from X-ray services
X-ray procedures are painless, fast and easy. Medical X-rays have increased the ability to detect disease or injury early enough for a medical problem to be managed, treated and cured. Because X-ray imaging is fast and easy, it’s particularly useful in emergency diagnosis and treatment.
