X-ray technology is used for the examination of internal organs, bones, blood vessels, and the progression of diseases such as cancer. It can also detect infection, blockages and foreign objects.
An X-ray procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Lying or standing, or holding a certain position, depending on the part of your body to be imaged.
- A contrast material or dye may be injected into a specific part of your body to obtain a more detailed view.
- The X-ray machine captures an image of the specified region.
