X-Ray or radiography uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the body's internal structures. X-Rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. They are often used to help diagnose fractured bones, look for injury or infection and to locate foreign objects in soft tissue. Some X-Rays exams may use an iodine-based contrast material or barium to help improve the visibility of specific organs, blood vessels, tissues or bone.
