X-ray film was utilized for many years to acquire a “hard copy” of images. Today, with enhanced technology, X-ray images are digital and can be diagnosed, reviewed and stored electronically through computers. This technology allows your medical record to be forwarded to any facility within a network. Routine X-ray procedures of the skeleton and chest can be performed without an appointment. Gastrointestinal X-rays require an appointment through Central Scheduling and, in some cases, a “prep” to be taken by the patient prior to examination.
