Inhale. Say cheese. Exhale.
It’s an X-ray.
An X-ray is an imaging test that a medical professional can use to diagnose a condition or an injury. It’s non-invasive and requires you to sit, stand or lie still for a short time while the machine uses a small dose of radiation to take a picture of the affected area. While radiation may sound scary, there is radiation around us every day, and a typical X-ray delivers as little radiation as you would receive going through your daily routine for three days.
X-rays are sometimes used when a patient has a potential broken bone, fracture or other chest or abdominal condition. For instance, an X-ray can even diagnose pneumonia, or help determine if a child has swallowed something that he or she shouldn’t have.
If you think you might have an injury or condition that requires an X-ray, stop by your local vybe urgent care and be seen today.
