X-ray exams are the most common studies performed in Radiology or Diagnostic Imaging. These exams include routine x-rays of bones, joints, chest, abdomen and spines. Other exams that are performed include upper gastrointestinal tract radiology, barium enemas, hysterosalpingograms, arthrograms, facet joint injections, aspirations, biopsies and other special procedures.
X-rays are a form of ionizing radiation that can pass through most tissues of the body. Modern x-ray equipment produces high quality images using a minimum of radiation. The radiologist will interpret the exam and the results will be sent to your physician within 3-5 working days.
