X-ray diagnostic imaging is a very basic, quick, painless test that produces images of the dense structures like bones and metal inside of the patient’s body. Dense materials like bone and metal will be shown as white under the x-ray imaging. The contrast media is used to provide a greater detail on the image if needed. X-ray diagnostic imaging provides information regarding possible fractures, infections, arthritis and possible malignancy. X-ray imaging is considered the first step during the diagnostic evaluation when imaging is required.
