What are X-rays?

X-rays use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film or digital media. Standard X-rays are performed for many reasons, including diagnosing tumors or bone injuries.

X-rays can be performed on an outpatient basis, or as part of inpatient care in Shreya hospital Ghaziabad

  Generally an X-ray procedure follows this process:

 1.The patient will be asked to remove any clothing or jewelry which might interfere with the exposure of the body area to be examined.

 2.The patient is positioned on an X-ray table that carefully positions the part of the body that is to be X-rayed–between the X-ray machine and a cassette containing the X-ray film or specialized image plate. The X-ray beam will be aimed at the area to be imaged.

 3.The technologist will step behind a protective window and the image is taken.

 4. According to the body part under study, various X-rays may be taken at different angles, such as the front and side view during a chest X-ray.
