What is an X-ray?
An X-ray is a noninvasive medical test that assists physicians in diagnosing and treating medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation, producing an image on a digital recording plate. These images can be seen by the physician on a computer monitor at the time of the visit.
The X-ray sensitive film is placed in different areas based on the body part being examined. As light from the machine passes through the film, silhouettes of your bones are left on the X-ray film. Due to the density of bone, the X-ray particles are absorbed to create an image; whereas X-rays pass right through the skin, leaving its appearance transparent.
