What is an X-ray?
An X-ray is a quick and easy way to take a photo of the body and identify problems within the body. X-rays are recommended when there are suspected bone breaks, fractures or infections as they can produce images of the inside of the body.
X-rays use radiation, which finds it harder to pass through dense parts of the body such as bone, which shows up white on scans. Darker areas on images indicate where there is damage.
