What is an X-ray?

To simplify things, X-Rays are a form of radiation (like light or radio waves) that are able to pass through a particular part of the body that needs to be examined and record an image. The X-rays will travel through the soft tissues, but they will not travel through the hard tissues such as bones, calcium deposits, teeth, etc. This leaves an image/picture of the bones.

Why are X-Rays Valuable?

  • Orthopedic surgeons, sometimes referred to as “bone doctors”, spend a lot of time looking at bones on X-Rays. A painless and non-invasive test, digital X-Rays are very good at picking up fractures, the shape of fracture and the type of fracture.
  • They also serve as an excellent guide to orthopedic surgeries during surgical procedures such as joint replacements, subchondroplasty and as well as fracture reductions.
  • In addition, x-rays are essential to the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to: arthritis, degenerative conditions, injuries, diseases, dislocated joints, growth plates and tumors.
