Medical X-rays

Diagnostic x-rays are sometimes needed to provide a doctor with important information about a medical condition.

Like many medical tests, x-rays have risks as well as benefits.  Your doctor is trained to determine whether the benefits of an x-ray outweigh the risks. The risk of not having a needed x-ray can be much greater than the risk from any exposure to the radiation.
