X-Ray

overview

X-Ray

X-Ray, also known as plain radiography, is the oldest diagnostic imaging procedure and remains one of the most effective for its range of diagnostic applications. It uses small amounts of radiation that pass through the selected part of the body and is often used to evaluate the chest and skeletal system.

X-Rays are performed at all seven (7) SDMI locations on a walk-in basis. No appointment is needed, but you will need to bring your physician referral with you.

frequently asked questions

How do I prep for an X-ray?

The general preparation is very simple. Once the patient gets to the exam, they will wear a standard dressing gown, depending on what area is being X-Rayed. In some cases, metallic objects such as jewelry, glasses or watches may need to be removed, as they may interfere with the scan and show up in the results.

A technologist will help the patient maintain the necessary procedure to record the imaging. In some cases, the patient may need to hold their breath while the testing is being performed to provide a clearer image. In other cases, the patient may be required to wear a lead apron to diminish the amount of radiation. Bone X-Rays may only last a few minutes, though in more complicated cases, procedures can last over an hour.

Once the X-Ray is complete, the patient can resume their normal level of activity without side effects. There may also be some slight discomfort depending on the positioning necessary to take the X-Ray.

What happens to my X-Ray after the procedure?

The results of modern X-Rays are saved digitally on computers, which can be viewed in minutes. A radiologist will examine the results and report back to the doctor for patient explanation. In emergency cases, X-Rays can be available in minutes if necessary. X-Rays are performed at all seven SDMI locations.
