General X-Rays

An X-ray is an image (picture) of your bones and internal organs. X-rays are most often used to detect bone or joint problems, or to check the heart and lungs (Chest X-ray). X-rays work by sending small amounts of radiation through the body. If an X-ray has been ordered, your doctor has decided that its value outweighs any risk.
