General Diagnostic X-ray

What is General Diagnostic X-ray imaging?

X-ray imaging is one of the most common types of medical imaging for people of any age. Whether you have fallen or injured yourself, this type of imaging is usually the first step in diagnosing broken or fractured bones or dislocated joints. 

X-ray imaging uses an X-ray beam (Ionizing electromagnetic radiation) that is projected onto the body. When passing through the body, some of the beam is absorbed, while other portions travel through and can be detected as an image, resulting in an image that can be viewed digitally on a computer or device.

General Diagnostic X-ray is the most basic type of X-ray that uses ionizing electromagnetic radiation to produce a single 2D image that may be used to evaluate many injuries or illnesses.
