X-Rays in
South Florida

An X-ray is a quick, painless test that produces images of the structures inside your body, particularly your bones. X-ray beams can pass through your body, but they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material they pass through.

X-rays are most well-known for their ability to see through the skin and reveal images of the bones beneath it. Today, advances in technology have led to more powerful and focused X-rays and ever greater applications of these light waves. For some types of X-ray tests, a contrast medium — such as iodine or barium — is introduced into your body to provide greater detail on the images.

X-ray beams pass through the body and are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material passed through. Dense materials like bone show up as white on X-rays. The air in the lungs shows up as black. Fat and muscle appear in of gray.

Your healthcare provider may recommend an X-ray for a wide variety of reasons including the following:

Bones

  • Fractures and infections.
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Bone cancer

Chest

  • Lung infections or conditions
  • Enlarged heart
  • Blocked blood vessels

Abdomen

  • Digestive tract problems
  • Swallowed items

If your healthcare provider has recommended an X-ray, it is important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Early diagnosis can lead to better treatment. For more information, please visit Radiologyinfo.org.

Quick and very efficient. They get you in and out. Arrived at 12:15pm for a 12:30pm appointment and was out by 1:15 pm. Perfect!

The staff was so professional and courteous. The wait was minimal and I was in and out in an hour. POM also took the extra time and energy to contact my insurance so I was able to get an MRI that same day!

John S.

What a great experience! From the moment I made my appointment with Vanessa, to the review of my 'whole body scan' results with Dr. Rodriguez, I was treated like a guest. The staff are efficient and I felt comfortable and informed at all times. Thank you, POM and staff!
