Routine x-rays involve exposing a part of the body to a small dose of radiation to produce an image of the bones or internal organs. When x-rays penetrate the body they are absorbed in varying amounts by different parts of the body. The most common use of routine x-ray is to diagnose bone injury and disease, such as fractures, bone infections and osteoarthritis. If you think you may be pregnant, please tell the technologist so that we can decide the best way to evaluate your situation.
