What Is An Xray

An X-ray is a diagnostic test performed in a hospital radiology department or a health care provider’s office by an X-ray technologist.  Generally speaking, X-rays are not painful tests; however, you may be asked to hold still in an awkward position for a short period of time.

X-rays are best for looking at bones and bone-related injuries.  X-rays may also be helpful in ruling out some soft tissue disorders; however, they often do not reveal soft tissue and other non-bone related injuries and conditions such as herniated discs or torn tendons.  CT Scans and MRIs tend to be more useful for diagnosing these types of injuries.
