Need an X-Ray? Stop By FastMed Urgent Care!
Slipping on ice, falling out of a tree, and tackling an opponent can all result in potentially sprained or broken limbs. Getting an x-ray is one way to determine if a bone is broken. However, x-rays may reveal health issues other than broken bones. A chest x-ray can reveal pneumonia, and mammograms can detect breast cancer.
X-rays work by sending particles through your body. Dense structures, such as bones or ulcers, block the particles and appear white on computer or film images of the body part receiving the x-ray. Medical professionals use x-rays to determine the severity of an injury and decide on appropriate treatment.
While x-rays are very safe, it’s important for children and pregnant women to exercise precaution. It’s also important to stay still during an x-ray because movement can blur the image. X-rays are also usually painless, but getting into a position for the best x-ray image might be uncomfortable. Luckily, the caring medical professionals at FastMed have experience with x-rays to get you on the road to recovery.
