What is X-Ray Imaging?

X-Rays are used in diagnostic radiology to determine abnormalities or injuries of the skeletal system.  X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation used to view internal structures of the human body.  Most experts believe X-rays are low risk and are largely outweighed by the benefits of information gained from appropriate imaging.  X-rays are monitored and regulated to provide the minimum amount of radiation exposure needed to produce the image.  All radiograph exams are performed by an ARRT registered radiologic technologist and interpreted by a Board Certified Radiologist.
