Are X-Rays Only Useful for Diagnosing Fractures?
Many people are familiar with the use of X-rays for confirming or ruling out a broken bone. However, medical imaging studies can be used for several other purposes as well. For instance, a healthcare provider may order X-rays to evaluate:
- A bone or joint condition, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, or a dislocation
- A foreign object embedded in the skin, such as a glass, metal, or wood splinter
- A digestive issue
- Kidney stones
- A respiratory condition, such as pneumonia
- A small, accidentally swallowed foreign object, such as a coin, marble, or key
