Lab technologists perform routine and specialty testing as ordered by your physician, Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Routine tests are run on a daily basis with results available to your physician within 24 hours depending on the test. The results of the tests are automatically transferred to your electronic medical record chart and sent to your physician for review. Your physician is alerted immediately by the lab if there is a medical problem that needs urgent attention. If required by your insurance, we will send laboratory testing to a designated commercial laboratory.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. In a healthcare setting, a machine sends individual X-ray particles, called photons. These particles pass through the body. A computer or special film is used to record the images that are created.
Structures that are dense (such as bone) will block most of the X-ray particles and will appear white. Metal and contrast media (special dye used to highlight areas of the body) will also appear white. Structures containing air will be black, and muscle, fat, and fluid will appear as shades of gray.
The test is performed in a radiology department by an X-ray technologist. The positioning of the patient, X-ray machine, and film depends on the type of study and area of interest. Multiple individual views may be requested.
