X-Ray Q & A
What are X-rays?
X-rays are quick, painless, diagnostic imaging procedures that produce images of bones and other structures inside your body. X-ray beams pass through body tissues to make bones appear white, air appear black, and muscle and fat show up as various shades of gray.
The Medical Imaging Center of North Jersey offers digital X-rays with a new, state-of-the-art, high-frequency X-ray machine that reduces radiation exposure to patients. It provides high-resolution, quality imaging.
Why might I need X-rays?
Your primary care doctor or specialist might recommend you undergo X-rays at the Medical Imaging Center of North Jersey for numerous reasons, including the presence of:
- Sports-related injuries
- Automobile accident injuries
- Falls or other injuries
- Lung infections
- Swallowed items
- Heart or blood vessel problems
In addition to digital X-rays, the Medical Imaging Center of North Jersey offers innovative open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures.
How should I prepare for X-rays?
While there’s no special preparation needed prior to undergoing X-rays, you might change into a hospital gown, depending on which part of your body requires imaging. You may need to swallow a contrast medium or receive it as an injection to better outline specific body tissues during the procedure.
What happens during X-ray procedures?
During digital X-rays, you relax on a comfortable exam table. Your provider helps you move into an appropriate position. You must remain still during the procedure and sometimes hold your breath. X-rays might take just a few minutes or longer in some cases. The procedure is painless without any downtime afterward.
What should I expect after getting X-rays?
After undergoing digital X-rays at the Medical Imaging Center of North Jersey, you can resume everyday activities. Your radiologist reviews the results and interprets them. Your doctor can let you know which treatments, if any, you may need. They might recommend fracture care, a brace or cast, rest, injections, oral medications, or a surgical procedure.
