X-ray

Diagnostic radiology, more commonly called an X-ray, is the oldest form of medical imaging. X-ray is a fast, painless, and safe way for a doctor to view and assess conditions ranging from broken bones to pneumonia to cancer.

X-rays may be used to determine whether a bone is chipped, dislocated, or broken; evaluate joint injuries and bone infections; diagnose and monitor the progression of degenerative conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis; screen for heart and lung diseases; find and treat artery blockages; diagnose the cause of persistent coughing or chest pain; evaluate unexplained abdominal pain; help locate objects that may have been accidentally swallowed by a child; determine whether a bone or disk in the spine has been injured; detect scoliosis and other spinal defects; evaluate sinus infections; locate dental problems; diagnose lung, intestinal; stomach, liver, spleen, kidney, and breast cancer; and determine whether cancer has spread to the lungs from another part of the body.
