Radiography, known to most people as x-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. For nearly a century, diagnostic images have been created by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the human body, capturing the resulting shadows and reflections on a photographic plate.
Diagnostic x-rays involve a minimum of two x-rays taken of the region of interest. There is no preparation for these examinations and can be done in conjunction with any other studies you may need during your visit.
