EXCEPTIONAL IMAGES. LOW DOSE IMAGING
X-Ray, also known as Radiography, is the fastest and easiest way for a Radiologist to view bones, the lungs and certain soft tissues. X-Ray is most commonly used to assess broken bones, but also plays a key role in orthopedic imaging for surgery and sports-related injuries, as well as many other diagnostic purposes.
THE X-RAY PROCEDURE
Generally, two or three x-rays will be taken depending on the body part that is being viewed. There is no preparation for an x-ray, although you may be asked to change into a gown to eliminate any interference from metal objects on clothing. You may return to normal activities once your x-rays are complete.
FOLLOWING AN X-RAY
Once your X-Ray study is complete, one of TSJI’s Radiologists will interpret the exam and report the findings to your physician. Your physician will contact you to discuss the results of your exam.
X-Rays may be scheduled and also done on a walk-in basis from 8:00am-5:30pm M-F.
For walk-in X-ray exams after 5:30pm or on Saturday, please call ahead to check availability.
