An x-ray allow your doctor to see internal parts of the body. It can be useful for your doctor to do an x-ray if you are experiencing unexplained pain, if you have a disease that your doctor needs to monitor, or if your doctor would like to assess the effect of a particular treatment. There are a number of conditions that may require an x-ray. These conditions include arthritis, blocked blood vessels, cancer, lung conditions, bone fractures, tumours, certain infections, osteoporosis, and conditions that cause digestive issues. After you have had a x-ray your doctor will be able to take a look at them and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.
