On-site X-rays

Accessibility impacts outcomes and experience. We offer multiple points of access towards your recovery.


How do they work?

Also known as an x-ray machine, x-rays use a beam of electromagnetic radiation to generate detailed images of bones and tissues beneath the surface of the body. When an x-ray beam passes through the body, it is absorbed in different amounts by tissues such as bone and muscle. The image that results from this process is then captured on a special photographic film or digital image recorder.

The amount of radiation used in x-rays is very small and considered safe, but due to the potential risks associated with overexposure, only a certified professional should operate an x-ray machine. The exact amount of exposure depends on the type of exam being done and how long it takes to complete.

X-rays are a valuable tool to help diagnose various conditions such as fractures, tumors, and other abnormalities. They play an important role in medical diagnostics and can provide essential information for doctors to make informed decisions about patient care. X-ray imaging is also used in the treatment of certain conditions or diseases, such as fractures or dislocations.


X-ray Safety 

X-ray safety is a crucial component of medical imaging. X-rays are used for diagnosis and patient care, but they can also be hazardous if not used properly. X-ray safety involves using the right equipment, setting up proper shielding, and taking appropriate precautions to protect patients, healthcare workers, and other individuals from the harmful effects of radiation exposure. X-ray safety protocols must be followed in order to ensure the safety of all involved. It is essential that X-ray safety measures are taken to protect everyone from unnecessary radiation exposure. Patients are provided lead apron, thyroid shield, and X-ray protective glasses to decrease your exposure to radiation. X-ray equipment is regularly maintained and checked for proper functioning.  


Pregnancy warning 

There are potential risks associated with X-raying women who are pregnant or possibly pregnant. It is important that if there is any possibility you are pregnant, please tell us before X-rays are taken.
