What Does X-ray Imaging at Tri-County Medical Clinic Involve?
X-ray Imaging uses electromagnetic waves to essentially take a picture of the inside of patient’s body. The electromagnetic waves pass through the body, resulting in a clinical image. On the picture, the various body parts are shown in different shades of black and white colors. You are positioned on an X-ray bed while the X-ray machine takes images. You will most likely be asked to hold your breath in while the X-ray machine takes images of various body parts and in various positions. X-ray imaging is painless and very quick- usually lasting about 10-15 minutes. The physicians at Tri-County Medical Clinic will then promptly review and discuss the results with you and proceed with a treatment plan.
