General X-Ray

Evaluation Made Quick and Easy

General X-ray is often ordered for a quick and easy evaluation. X-ray technology requires a small amount of radiation to create the images of the area being studied.  The ability of X-ray to penetrate tissues and bones varies according to the composition and mass of the structure of the body.
