X-rays (also called radiographs) are the one of the most common and widely available diagnostic imaging techniques, and one of the oldest forms of medical imaging. An X-ray is actually an electromagnetic beam that is aimed through your body to a piece of film behind it. The resulting image allows your doctor to help narrow the causes of an injury or illness and ensure that the diagnosis is accurate.
At Florida Orthopaedic Institute, we have both digital and conventional X-ray capabilities. Even if you need more sophisticated tests, you will probably get an X-ray first.
