An X-ray is a quick, painless test that produces images of the structures inside your body. X-rays are used to capture images of bone, lungs, an enlarged heart, and the abdomen. It can be used to help reveal arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, infections, congestive heart failure, blocked blood vessels, and problems with the digestive tract.
All medical images at MDI Hospital are processed digitally, which for X-ray patients means fewer retakes, less radiation exposure, and a quicker review of the images. Our department has two state-of-the-art X-ray suites that are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
All X-ray technicians at MDI Hospital are nationally credentialed through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
