Diagnostic X-Ray Procedures
X-ray procedures give health-care providers important information about what’s going on inside the body from broken bones to signs of cancer. Radiologists, specially trained doctors, “read” these images and send a report of their findings to your doctor.
X-ray images are produced by passing radiation through the body and recording the image on a digital receptor. The images are stored on a computer. The images and report are available to your physician via the internet.
Diagnostic x-ray procedures vary. The equipment and steps involved differ, depending on the procedure and part of the body being studied. Be sure to ask your physician if the procedure being requested requires any pre-procedure prep.
