Why book an X-ray test?
An X-ray test is a painless test conducted to develop an image of the body’s internal structure. The images show black and white shades of different parts. The white color shows bones, and the dark color shows tissues and ligaments. The images formed by the x-ray can detect broken bones, ligaments, cartilages, etc. It provides a detailed image of the internal organs of the body. The X-Ray is done for the following reasons:
- Determines severity of fractures

- Infections of the bone and soft tissue
- Kidney stones
- Obstruction in the urinary tract
