WHAT ARE X-RAYS?
At times, x-rays (radiographs) may be recommended to diagnose or monitor certain types of health conditions. Horizon Medical Center is pleased to offer on-site x-ray services to help you get the comprehensive care you need, all under one roof. X-rays are medical images that show internal portions of the body, such as the bones, joints, and internal organs, and may be taken to evaluate or diagnose certain diseases, pain or other symptoms, injuries, and additional health issues. Radiographs provide our team with a more in-depth understanding of your health, allowing our primary care physicians to detect an array of conditions and determine the best course of treatment. Contact our Schaumburg, IL medical center today for more on our convenient on-site diagnostic radiology services.
HOW ARE X-RAYS TAKEN?
