X-rays are 2D images of your internal body structures, organs and bones. We use x-rays to diagnose and treat medical conditions and injuries.
We provide x-ray examinations for:
- bone and joint conditions
- chest and abdomen conditions
Are x-rays harmful?
The amount of radiation you will receive will be dependent upon the specific examination your doctor has requested for you. If you have any concerns regarding this examination, you should discuss it further with your doctor as the benefits should outweigh the risks to you.
