What is X-Ray?
An x-ray is a medical test that physicians use to diagnosis and treat their patient's medical conditions. It is the oldest and most commonly used form of medical testing. An X - ray is a painless and quick test for the patient to endure. It involves exposing the part of the body that is being examined to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
X -ray is also used to diagnose various conditions of the lungs including pneumonia, tumors and changes of heart failure. It also is used to diagnose fractures and other abnormalities of bones, joint conditions, and causes of abdominal pain.
Fluoroscopy involves using X-rays to take "live" images of the body. It is typically used to examine the gastrointestinal tract such as the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.
