X-rays (also commonly referred to as radiographs) are one of the most common and widely used diagnostic imaging techniques available. X-rays are also one of the oldest forms of medical imaging and have been used for over 100 years to diagnose a range of medical conditions and injuries. X-rays are actually an electromagnetic beam that is aimed through the patient’s body onto film placed behind the patient. The resulting image allows your doctor to detect and diagnose a range of injuries and create a treatment plan to address your problem.
Although physical examinations are an important part of sports medicine, at Green Sports Medicine we understand that sometimes a bit more is needed. X-rays allow us to get a better picture of what is going on inside of your body, allowing us to diagnose a wider range of injuries and conditions.
When it comes to getting x-rays, we always recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing for your testing. If you are pregnant, please let your doctor know, x-rays may not be safe during pregnancy.
