X-rays are an important diagnostic tool that can provide valuable information about the structure and function of the body. X-rays can be used to detect a wide range of conditions, from fractures and dislocations to infections and tumours. It can also be used to evaluate the health of bones, joints, and other tissues. In addition, it can be used to detect foreign objects in the body, such as swallowed coins or bullets. X-rays are generally safe and have few side effects. However, pregnant women and young children should avoid X-rays unless they are absolutely necessary.
The procedure is simple and quick and usually does not require any special preparation. The patient will be asked to remove any jewellery or other metal objects that may interfere with the X-ray, and then lie down on the table. The X-ray machine will be positioned over the area of the body being imaged, and the radiologist will take one or more images, which will later be interpreted by a physician to make a diagnosis.
