X-Ray Q & A
What are X-rays?
X-rays are imaging tests that doctors use to see inside your body. One of the oldest medical imaging methods out there, they work using safe amounts of radiation. X-rays send a beam through your body, which shows up in different shades and colors on the picture, depending on the density of the body parts that it passes through.
What do X-rays show?
X-rays can offer insight into the state of numerous body parts and systems, including:
- The chest
- The abdomen
Chest X-rays can reveal all sorts of things, such as:
- Evidence of lung infections and diseases, like pneumonia and COPD
- An enlarged heart or presence of heart failure
Abdomen X-rays help doctors identify foreign objects in the stomach (an issue most common among children) and issues in the digestive tract.
Meanwhile, bone X-rays can help you identify all sorts of skeletal issues, like:
- Bone infections
- Spine alignment
Are X-rays painful?
X-rays are pain-free. However, when you’re getting an X-ray taken, you may feel discomfort because the X-ray technician will ask you to hold very still and hold your breath. They may also ask you to maintain an uncomfortable position so that they can get the images that they need.
Are X-rays safe for children?
Technically, X-rays slightly increase everyone’s risk for cancer, because they expose them to radiation. But even though children are more susceptible to radiation than adults, the amount of radiation today’s X-rays create is negligible, and experts consider X-rays to be safe.
