X-ray

X-ray

An X-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.

With digital radiography, X-ray technologists don’t have to wait for film to be processed and they don’t have to take a second X-ray if the first one is a little too dark or light. Instead of being printed on film, the image instantly appears on a computer screen and can be manipulated to improve contrast and clarity.

Digital radiography is used most often for taking chest X-rays, but it can be used to X-ray any part of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.
