X-RAY Overview

X-ray is a quick, easy exam that produces images of the structures inside your body using a small amount of radiation that passes through the body to capture a single image of your anatomy to assess injury (fractures or dislocations) or disease (bone degeneration, infections or tumors).

What You Need To Know


X-ray is used to create images of internal organs or bones to help diagnose conditions or injuries, such as: 

  • Broken bones
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic and stress fractures
  • Fluid in the lung
  • Kidney stones


X-ray uses a small amount of radiation to generate the image it creates. The clinical benefits of medical imaging typically outweigh the potential risks of radiation exposure, but talk with your doctor or our staff if you have any concerns.
