What is an X-Ray?

X-Rays or Radiographs are the oldest and most commonly used type of medical imaging. An x-ray is a non-invasive method that produces images of the structures of the inside of your body.

An X-Ray can provide physicians with information on:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Other internal injuries

What to expect from an X-Ray:

  • An X-Ray is a simple procedure, and will take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the areas of the body being x-rayed and the type of injuries being examined.
  • A technologist will position your body in the appropriate angle and may ask you to hold your breath for a moment while the image is recorded. The technologist will reposition you for another view and the process is repeated.

Preparing for your X-Ray:

  • Please arrive approximately 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow for the registration process.
  • No special preparation is needed.


Your X-Ray results will be reported to your referring physician, usually within 1-2 business days. Your referring physician will contact you with your results.
