X-ray or general radiograph is the most basic form of medical imaging. It is one of the most commonly used techniques for imaging internal structures of the body. An X-ray requires a small amount of radiation to produce an X-ray image of the body. The image is available within just a few seconds. For most X-rays minimal preparation is required. Special instructions will be given at the time of scheduling if needed. However, if you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, it is important that you tell your provider and radiology technologist before the exam is performed.
After the exam is done it is viewed and interpreted by a doctor, called a radiologist, to detect and diagnose medical conditions in the body. After reading (interpreting) an image, the radiologist will send a report to your provider. The radiologist may recommend further investigation through the use of other more advanced imaging.
