Frequently Asked Questions About Digital X-ray Services:
What is an X-ray?
An x-ray is a painless test in which images are produced of the inside of the body using small radiation doses. X-rays can be performed on any part of the body and are also used during bone density scans as well as contrast tests of the bladder, stomach, colon, esophagus, stomach and small intestine.
How does an x-ray work?
A technologist on staff will assist patients dependent on whether they need to stand, sit or lie down during the procedure. The X-ray will take less than a few seconds and is completely painless.
Is an X-ray safe?
An x-ray picture is created by using radiation. The minimal dosage of radiation is used to create an x-ray picture at Alliance MRI. All requests for x-ray are closely monitored to ensure that patients receive the most exact diagnosis while using the least amount of radiation exposure.
