X-rays are painless, non-invasive exams that are used to detect abnormalities in the body. We’ll perform all general x-rays including but not limited to, chest, knees, ankles, wrists, hands, spines and hips.
X-rays are electromagnetic radiation that, when passed through the body, penetrate the internal structures creating a computer image digitally. The varying density of the different structures will appear distinctive from one another on the x-ray film.
Our imaging center features a new digital x-ray unit with a room that doesn’t require development of traditional x-ray films. Our technologists get digital results immediately for every type of exam, including all bone work, scoliosis surveys and leg length measurements. Immediate results enable us to get answers to you more quickly and keep you waiting less.
How To Prepare:
To prepare for your x-ray exam, we recommend that you wear loose comfortable clothing. You may be asked to put on a gown and to remove items such as jewelry or piercings.
If you’re pregnant or may be pregnant, please let your x-ray technologist know prior to the exam.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the examination your physician has requested, please call our main number at (914) 253-9200.
