X-Ray Q & A
What is an X-ray?
An X-ray is an imaging test that provides black and white pictures of the bones in your body. Dr. Surendran can use this type of test to detect bone breaks or fractures in you:
X-ray imaging can also be useful in detecting chronic health conditions, including arthritis and cancer.
If you have symptoms of an infection in your chest or lungs, your doctor may use X-ray technology to examine your chest area. Images of your test can also determine if you have conditions like pneumonia, heart failure, or lung cancer.
For your convenience, Rochester Primary Care offers on-site X-ray technology to prevent you from traveling to a hospital or other facility for a diagnosis.
What can I expect during an X-ray?
Because X-ray technology uses small doses of radiation to produce images, your doctor places a protective covering over areas of your body not being tested. They may also you to sit or lie down or change positions to get the necessary images.
An X-ray procedure isn’t painful and requires no anesthesia. It can take some time for enough X-ray images to be taken to ensure a proper diagnosis.
Once the X-rays are complete, Dr. Surendran can review the images to identify medical issues that need treatment.
What are the benefits of an X-ray?
X-rays are the quickest way to identify injuries to the bones or bone-related conditions, like arthritis, in the joints. Fast diagnostic testing ensures you receive prompt treatment to prevent further health complications.
Risk of radiation exposure during an X-ray is limited and your body won’t retain any of the radiation after the procedure. If you’re pregnant, Dr. Surendran can determine if an X-ray is a safe procedure based on the reason for the test and your medical history.
You can expect to go back to your usual activities without any downtime or limitations. If any issues show up on your X-ray, you may need to undergo other testing.
