X-Rays are the most commonly used diagnostic medical imaging tool available. X-Rays are performed for a variety of reasons to evaluate bones, lungs, or soft tissues within the body.
An X-Ray creates a grey-scale image of the body where structures of different densities show up with various levels of brightness. Dense parts of the body (such as bone) appear bright white on an X-Ray. Muscle and organs (commonly referred to as soft tissues) show up as various shades of grey, depending on their density. Hollow or air-filled parts of the body (including the lungs) show up black.
We’re proud to use the latest X-Ray technology while our experienced Radiologists provide reports in a completely film-less environment.
There is no preparation required in advance for your X-Ray. However, you may be asked to remove any clothing which has metal (such as zippers or buttons) or any other metal items (such as jewelery) as these objects interfere with the images obtained.
In order to ensure that you can get your x-ray done before the end of the day please arrive at least 30 minutes before closing.
