What are X-Rays?

You've probably had X-Rays taken by your dentist or another medical professional, but have you ever wondered exactly how they work, and whether they're safe?

With X-Rays, our experienced team uses high-energy electromagnetic radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. The image produced allows our radiologists to look at bones and joints so we can detect a range of conditions. X-Rays are also sometimes used to detect problems with internal organs and other soft tissues. 

If your doctor suspects you may have a fractured or broken bone, heart problem, lung infection, tumour, or another issue, you may be referred to our team of expert radiologists. 

Whatever your condition, our experienced radiologists and support staff are here to answer any questions you may have, and to help you feel comfortable and safe. 

The X-Rays Procedure 

Different parts of the body absorb energy produced by X-Rays at different rates. After an X-Ray beam passes through the body, a detector on the other side of the body picks up the X-Rays and converts them to an image.

After your X-Rays are complete, the radiologist will ensure you and your doctor receive your results in a timely fashion. We are happy to answer any questions you and your healthcare team may have and to schedule any future imaging appointments.
