X-Ray Cost and X-Ray Procedures Information

An X-Ray Procedure is used to study and diagnose disease of the skeletal system as well as for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. X-rays use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film. X-rays are made by using external radiation to produce images of the body, its organs and other internal structures for diagnostic purposes. X-rays pass through body tissues onto specially treated plates (similar to camera film) and a “negative” type picture is made (the more solid a structure is, the whiter it appears on the film).

More about X-Ray Procedures

Patient Preparation For an X-Ray Procedure

Guidelines about eating and drinking before an X-Ray exam vary at different facilities. Unless you are told otherwise, you may follow your regular daily routine and take medications as usual. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant it is important to inform your doctor or technician prior to the X-Ray. Notify your doctor or technologist if you have any metal in or on your body such as body piercings, eye glasses, or jewelry which may interfere with the procedure. Dress in comfortable clothing that can easily be removed if needed.

What to expect during and after an X-Ray

A X-Ray procedure is a relatively painless procedure. The only discomfort may be associated with the manipulation of the body part being examined particularly in the case of a recent injury or invasive procedure such as surgery. The overall preparation and procedure will take approximately 30 minutes not including waiting time. Depending upon what is being scanned and what type of X-ray (the type of view) your doctor orders you may be asked to get undressed and to put on a hospital gown and you may be lying, sitting, or standing for the scan. You will be asked to hold your position still for several seconds until the image is being captured. It is important that you hold your position still during the scan exposure to prevent any blur on the film. Your X-ray films will be interpreted by a trained doctor and then discussed directly with you.
