Using electromagnetic energy, X-rays can take pictures of the inside of your body. These pictures allow Inspira physicians to examine your internal tissues, bones and organs.  

What to Expect When You Have an X-ray 

At Inspira, our team of imaging specialists will make sure you understand what to expect on the day of your X-ray and inform you of any special instructions you’ll need to follow. For example, certain X-rays may require you to stop eating and drinking beforehand for the best results. Others may require you to drink a contrast material that helps make your internal organs visible on the X-ray.  

X-rays take just a few minutes and are painless, though they can be a bit uncomfortable. Your Inspira technologist may ask you to stand or lie in different positions to capture comprehensive images. X-rays are then taken using a safe level of radiation.  

After the exam is complete, those images are sent to an Inspira radiologist who uses state-of-the-art voice recognition software to interpret them and quickly send them to your physician.
