X-Ray Q & A

What is an X-ray?

X-ray is a medical technology that’s been around since the late 1890s. At One Oak Medical, Dr. Mahmood, Dr. Ibrahim, and Dr. Badri use the latest digital X-ray technology to look inside your body to evaluate your bones and soft tissues. This technology enables them to diagnose and treat a variety of medical issues in a noninvasive way.

Your doctor might also request chest, lung, or abdominal X-rays to look at bones, organs, and surrounding structures to diagnose the cause of symptoms associated with those specific areas of the body, like shortness of breath or chest pains.

Why might I need an X-ray?

At One Oak Medical, your provider might recommend a digital X-ray to look for broken bones or to identify the cause of unexplained pain. Additional factors might include:

  • Evaluating scoliosis or other spine issues
  • Identifying bone issues, including breaks or fractures
  • Managing degenerative conditions, such as arthritis
  • Monitoring foot and ankle conditions, such as stress fractures
  • Treating sports injuries, such as tennis elbow, meniscus tears, or ACL injuries

Your doctor might also recommend an X-ray to follow the treatment or progression of your condition to gauge your response to therapy.

What can I expect during an X-ray?

The experienced team at One Oak Medical offers digital on-site X-rays for your convenience. X-rays are typically simple procedures that don’t require advanced preparation. If any kind of special preparation is necessary before your X-rays, your doctor provides additional instructions before your appointment.

During your X-ray, your technician places you in certain positions to capture the best images possible; this might include sitting, lying down, or standing in a variety of ways, or taking an image from the front or back view. You must remain still while the technician captures the pictures.

X-rays are typically painless, but if you have a broken bone or another painful issue, you may experience discomfort while the technician positions you and takes your images.

After Dr. Mahmood, Dr. Ibrahim, or Dr. Badri review your X-rays, they follow-up with additional information on how to proceed. This might include further testing or a treatment strategy for your condition.
