An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose numerous 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. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. A full spectrum of tests include: chest, bone, joint, spine, abdominal, and gastrointestinal tract.
Also available: a moving picture x-ray in real time called fluoroscopy, and IVP (kidney, ureters, and urinary bladder) studies.
The hospital's Emergency Room X-Ray suite offers state-of-the-art digital equipment for faster service to expedite treatment.
