What is an x-ray?
An x-ray or radiograph is a painless imaging test that uses small amounts of radiation to produce pictures of bones, organs and tissues. Most studies are now produced digitally rather than on photographic film.
How long does it take for an x-ray?
Most x-rays take less than about 15 minutes. Maybe longer if contrast and fluoroscopy are required.
What does an x-ray show?
An x-ray shows images of your teeth and bones particularly well.
What does an x-ray cost?
X-rays can cost from $100 to several hundred dollars. X-ray costs are considerably more when using your health insurance plan to pay for it or when having it done in a hospital.
