What is an X-Ray?
X-ray imaging is a technique utilizing ionizing radiation to produce detailed internal body images. This method works as X-rays, penetrating body tissues, are absorbed variably by different materials. Dense structures like bones absorb more radiation, appearing white on X-ray images, while soft tissues absorb less, resulting in gray shades. This imaging is crucial for doctors and radiologists to diagnose and track various conditions, from bone fractures to infections, tumors, and lung diseases. For any medical concerns, we encourage you to consult with our doctor for a more tailored understanding of your needs.
