General Radiography

Procedure

General Radiography uses x-rays to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. The x-ray machine generates the x-rays which penetrate through the body to produce an image.  It employs medical photography in which a snapshot is made of the specified body part. During the exam, the patient is positioned so that the part of the body being imaged is located between the receptor and the x-ray tube. Common X-ray procedures include imaging of extremities (hand, foot) and the chest. Although best for bones, x-rays can see many soft tissue structures.
