X-Ray involves taking one or a few pictures of a body part. Often, x-rays of the bones are taken to look for a fracture (broken bone). Another common x-ray is a Chest X-ray, used to look for abnormalities in the lungs such as infection. An x-ray can be done of almost any body part, and takes usually just a few minutes.
The x-ray is read by a highly trained doctor (radiologist).

I found a lump and needed a mammogram and ultrasound. I was very nervous, but the staff put me at ease. They go out of their way to make you more comfortable: the gown was heated and I had a private changing room as well as a separate waiting area. The mammo and ultrasound techs were both very nice and gentle, and the experience was much easier than I expected. To further add to my positive experience, I received a call from Dr. Mendi (the radiologist) on a Saturday morning letting me know my results which meant I didn't have to spend all weekend worrying. I would highly recommend Skan to anyone who needs imaging done.
