X-ray (radiograph) is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat 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 body’s inside.
X-rays are the oldest, most frequently used form of medical imaging. X-rays are used for diagnosing various medical problems in bones, chest, upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. For example, a radiograph can determine broken bones, joint dislocation, fracture, infection, arthritis, bone cancer and locate foreign objects.
