X-rays are a non-invasive and painless way to reveal the interior structure of your body. X-rays produce two-dimensional images of your bones using electromagnetic radiation. Because your bones absorb x-rays and the surrounding tissue can’t, it creates a clear image of what is happening inside your body. Using x-rays, your doctor can determine whether a bone has been fractured, and to what extent. This process allows your doctor to make informed decisions about your specific treatment plan.
While the term “radiation” may sound scary, the doses used when you undergo an x-ray procedure are extremely minimal, and the low level of radiation contact required is smaller than the annual dose most people are exposed to from completely natural sources over the course of a year.
