An x-ray is a quick, painless diagnostic imaging test that allows your doctor to view the bones inside your body. X-ray is performed while wearing a provided gown and is able to pass through body tissue, and internal organs. An x-ray machine sends radiation through your body that produces an image on the other side.
X-rays are used to examine many parts of the body. Some common uses for x-rays include:
- Diagnosis of bone fractures or infections
- Bone Cancer
- Lung Infections or conditions
After your exam your doctor will be able to review the test results. For more information and to schedule an x-ray exam, please call 541.667.3520.
