X-Ray Cost

X-ray is a quick and painless imaging test that generates images of body parts like bones, using small amounts of radiation. Dense materials like bones, metals etc. show up on X-Ray as white. X-ray is used to produce pictures of organs, tissues, bones. It is useful in diagnosing and assessing health issues, if any.

Your doctor may order an X-ray test if he sees signs of broken bones, arthritis, cancer, dislocated joints etc. It is important to stay still during an X-ray to avoid blurred images. The test only takes a few minutes.

X-ray beams are electromagnetic radiations that are used to produce images of different organs of the body. The procedure consists of a film similar to a photographic film being placed at the back of the body part needed to be X-rayed. The X-ray machine sends X-ray beams through the body. The X-ray hits the film at the back and the film is then developed. Or in some cases, it is generated on a computer attached to the X-ray machine. The more X-rays hit the film, the darker the image is produced.

Based on the density of the body part, the X-ray is often a mix of white, black and gray spots. Dense materials like bones etc. allow the lowest penetration of the X-rays and appear white on an X-ray. Parts containing air and water are less dense and hence allow maximum X-rays to pass through and appear black on the X-ray film. Muscles, fluids etc. appear different shades of gray since they absorb less radiation. The x-ray film is then analysed by a radiologist. If X-ray is not giving desired results, then MRI scan or CT scan may be suggested.

Sometimes, a contrast medium like barium or iodine is given to get a clear view on the X-ray film. These mediums highlight certain areas on an X-ray film. These contrast mediums are either ingested or administered as injections. In some cases, there are certain side effects associated with taking contrast mediums such as nausea, itching, lightheadedness, allergic response such as hives etc. X-ray tests are mainly performed at doctor's offices, hospitals, emergency rooms etc.

X-rays are mainly used for examining broken bones but there are several other uses. A chest X-ray can be useful in diagnosing pneumonia. Mammogram helps in looking for breast cancer. X-ray also helps in detecting heart issues by examining the size and shape of the heart. It also helps in detecting the accumulation of fluids in lungs or gut.

There is a little risk with X-rays considering the amount of radiation is small enough to not cause any permanent harm. However, constant exposure to X-rays may lead to cells being damaged due to radiation. This could increase the risk of possibility of cancer later in life. Sensitivity depends on the age and hence children are more sensitive to X-rays than adults.

Let your doctor know if you're pregnant, so that he/she can make sure your baby isn't exposed to radiation and can choose alternate methods, like an ultrasound. You need to wear loose clothing so as to make the process easier. Any jewellery, glasses, or metal items that can interfere with the process must be taken off.

X-rays are usually visualized digitally during emergencies. In normal cases, the radiologist interprets the X-ray film and then a report is sent to the doctor who ordered the test.

X-Ray FAQs
Q: Is X-ray safe during pregnancy?
A: X-rays are safe during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy (only if absolutely needed); however, they are unsafe during the 1st and 3rd trimester of pregnancy. It would be advisable to ask your doctor if there are any other alternatives.
Q: Is X-ray safe for newborns?
A: X-rays are considered unsafe for newborns if performed for a long duration of time. Chest X-rays require very less period of time and therefore, can be recommended to babies.
Q: What are risks associated with X-rays?
A: Some tissue cells can be affected if being exposed to X-ray radiations. Doctors do not suggest X-rays for such sections of the body. High radiation X-rays can cause bleeding, skin damage, hair-fall, fainting and vomiting. For protecting all patients, lead apron can be worn.
Q: What are the preparations required before an X-ray?
A: Avoid wearing your valuables like watch, jewelery, eye glasses or contact lenses during an X-ray. No metallic objects worn over your body are allowed during an X-ray. No fasting is required.
Q: What are digital X-rays?
A: Digital X-rays utilize special sensors instead of traditional X-ray films. Low radiation beams are used in a digital X-ray. Many diagnostic centers are now equipped with digital X-ray facilities that provide improved safety.
