X-Ray

What is an X-Ray?

An x-ray (radiograph) is a painless medical test to help physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiography involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation  to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.
