What is an X-RAY examination?
An X-RAY examination is a painless imaging technology used for routine radiographic diagnostic procedures of the skeletal system, respiratory system, obstetric pelvis, spinal column and gastrointestinal tract. An X-RAY uses electromagnetic waves to produce images of bones and certain tissues of the body.
