X-Ray in Hyderabad
X-ray often called radiography, is one of the most common imaging tests that has been used in diagnostic tests for decades. It helps the doctor to see the inside parts of your body without making any incisions. They can use this to diagnose, monitor, and treat a wide range of medical conditions.
X-rays are of different types, and different x-rays might be used in diagnosing different health conditions. For instance, a mammogram is used to evaluate the problems associated with your breasts. Or the doctor may suggest an X-ray with a barium enema in order to get a better look at your GI tract. Some other types of X-rays are Computerized Tomography(CT), Angiography, and Fluoroscopy.
At Klavo Clinic we offer these x-ray services with high quality as we use the latest x-ray machines handled by qualified and experienced technicians.
How X-rays work
X-rays are said to be a kind of radiation called electromagnetic waves. When X-rays pass through your body they create pictures of the inside parts of your body. In the images, the body parts are displayed in a variety of black and white shades, because the amount of radiation absorbed by the tissues is different. As calcium absorbs more x-rays, the bones appear white in the image. Fat and other soft tissues are likely to absorb less x-rays so they appear in grey. As air absorbs a very little amount of radiation, your lungs appear in black colour.
X-rays are more familiar for checking for bone fractures (broken bones), but they are used in diagnosing various diseases. For instance, pneumonia can be spotted with the help of chest x-rays.
Some other health conditions that can be diagnosed with the help of x-rays are:
- Breast tumours
- Heart problems
- Blocked blood vessels
- Lung conditions
- Digestive problems
- Bone conditions like osteoporosis, bone cancer etc.
- Arthritis to joints
There are certain minor risks involved in receiving an X-ray. As we know they use radiation in small quantities to create images that are considered safe for many adults but not in the case of growing babies. Pregnant women should avoid having an X-ray. The doctors recommend pregnant women undergo other imaging methods such as MRI.
