What is an X-Ray?
An X-Ray is a photographic or digital image of the internal composition of the body.
Why do I need an X-Ray?
- Assists physicians to diagnose your condition
- Used to institute an appropriate treatment plan
- Provide follow-up information to our physicians about your response to therapy
When are X-Rays taken?
Initially, X-rays are taken on your fist visit. Any additional X-Ray imaging, when recommended by your attending physician, are taken to provide follow-up information about your response to therapy, such as fracture healing; whether they are treated non-operatively or surgically.
