An X-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation is passed through a body part to create an image. The image is produced as a result of the ways in which different internal structures absorb the radiation.
X-rays are most often performed to detect problems in the bones, such as fractures or evidence of arthritis in the joints, and in the chest, such as pneumonia.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under your Alberta and Saskatchewan Health Care Plans.
