X-Ray - What to Expect

X-rays are performed on a walk-in basis only with a doctor's order. 

X-ray is the most common form of medical imaging used to diagnose and treat conditions. 

Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
