X-Rays Q & A

How do X-rays work?

X-ray technology has been a leading diagnostic tool for decades. These highly effective imaging tests use small amounts of radiation to gather images of your inner structures. Your bones absorb the most amount of radiation, which is why they appear white on film. 

Radiation tends to pass through soft tissues, including connective tissues and muscles, which is why you see grayish tones in the areas surrounding your bones. This contrast in colors allows your doctor to pinpoint abnormal issues or injuries.

Why do I need X-rays?

The team at Calvary Urgent Care has on-site X-ray testing so your doctor can request images during your evaluation and get the results quickly. You may need an X-ray if you have:

  • Lung infections, such as pneumonia
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Acute or chronic pain 
  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Abnormal growths
  • Blocked vessels 

X-rays are also commonly used for children (or sometimes adults) who swallow foreign objects. 

Is it safe to get an X-ray?

Yes. Calvary Urgent Care provides digital X-ray imaging services, which exposes you to very little radiation. In general, the only time X-rays are a cause for concern is if you’re pregnant or think you may be pregnant.

While you can still get X-rays if needed during pregnancy, your technician takes extra measures to protect your growing baby by covering you with a lead apron. They may also recommend an alternative type of imaging test, such as an ultrasound. 

How long does it take to get my X-ray results?

As a state-of-the-art medical facility, Calvary Urgent Care houses the latest and most advanced technology to provide faster imaging results. Your technician takes one or more digital X-rays of the targeted area in various positions, as requested by your doctor.

Once your X-ray session is complete, those images are electronically transferred to your doctor for immediate review. You can often have your X-rays and follow-up diagnostic session during the same visit so you can get started on treatment quickly.
