X-Ray

Health care professionals use X-Ray to look for broken bones, problems in your lungs and abdomen, and many other problems.

X-ray technology uses electromagnetic radiation to make images. The image is recorded on a film, called a radiograph. The parts of your body appear light or dark due to the different rates that your tissues absorb the X-rays. Calcium in bones absorbs X-rays the most, so bones look white on the radiograph. Fat and other soft tissues absorb less, and look gray. Air absorbs least, so lungs look black.

X-ray examination is painless, fast and easy. The amount of radiation exposure you receive during an X-ray examination is small.
