Before your appointment, you may be wondering “what can x-rays detect?” By generating images of tissues and structures inside the body, an x-ray scan can detect many different internal conditions, some of which include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Foreign objects
Almost every part of the body can be x-rayed and checked for any issues negatively affecting your health. During an x-ray examination, a special machine emits a small amount of ionizing radiation that is passed through the body and is captured on a device to produce an image. The dose of radiation will vary depending on the area of the body being examined, with smaller areas only needing a small dose, and larger areas needing a bigger dose.
While the dose of radiation from an x-ray procedure is normally same amount that you would receive from the general environment over the course of a week, you should let your radiologist or doctor know if you may pregnant. If you are pregnant, your physician may recommend a different type of imaging test.
We have spared no expense to equip our facilities with the most modern and comfortable machines available, and we are constantly updating to keep pace with the leaps in imaging technology. We truly believe that our imaging centers exhibit all the best qualities of a caring and efficient diagnostic facility. Call to book your appointment with ImageCare West Orange, NJ, today.
