What Is An X-Ray?

An X-Ray creates an image of the inside of your body using radiation. During the exam, X-ray beams are shot through your body. Denser body parts, like bones, absorb more radiation and appear white on the X-ray image, while less dense body parts, like muscle, absorb less radiation and appear gray. This makes X-rays especially useful for finding bone fractures or infections. X-rays can also be used to identify other health conditions, such as a lung infection, enlarged heart, or digestive tract problems.

What To Expect During An X-Ray

Before an X-Ray, you’ll need to remove any clothing that covers the area being examined. You might be asked to wear a gown or to remove glasses, jewelry, or any other metal because it can block X-Ray imaging.

During your X-Ray, the technologist may ask you to sit, stand, or lie down, depending on what area of the body you’re having examined. Your technologist may move your body into different positions and ask you to hold still while the X-Ray image is being taken.

Most X-Rays are quick, taking just a few minutes. More complicated imaging may take longer.
