What is an X-ray?
An X-ray is a scan that creates images of the inside of your body. It is a quick and painless test that uses a form of electromagnetic radiation. An X-ray is performed using an X-ray machine, which produces safe levels of radiation for the exam. Some X-rays will use a contrast medium like iodine or barium for greater detail.
UR Medicine's Approach
You may receive a call from us to review your medical history to determine that no issues exist preventing you from having an X-ray.
If you believe you may be pregnant, or if you have had a contrast allergy/reaction (i.e., hives, rash, itching, breathing difficulty) while undergoing a previous imaging study, we ask that you call us at least three days ahead of your appointment.
