X-Rays Q & A

AccuHealth Urgent Care

What is an X-ray?

An X-ray is a type of imaging that's used for medical diagnostic purposes. An X-ray uses radiation, but in very small amounts that aren't harmful to the patient. The X-ray captures an image of the patient's inner body to allow the doctor to examine areas that can't be seen in a physical exam.

When will you get X-ray results?

Because AccuHealth Urgent Care has an X-ray machine on-site, the doctors can perform and evaluate the X-rays during the same appointment. In most cases, results take only a few minutes, which allows for the most efficient diagnosis and treatment.

When do you need an X-ray?

An X-ray may be needed in a variety of situations, including:

  • Arm injury
  • Leg injury
  • Ankle injury
  • Shoulder injury
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Chest pain
  • Pneumonia


For many types of pain, an X-ray is the best initial approach for diagnosis. The X-ray can reveal the exact nature of the injury and can allow you to get the treatment you need.

How are X-rays performed?

At AccuHealth Urgent Care, X-rays are performed efficiently and quickly, with no discomfort for the patient. The entire area being X-rayed must be clear of clothing, so in some cases you may need to disrobe and wear a gown to allow for a clear image. If you're wearing anything made of metal, for example a necklace or a piercing, it must be taken off before the X-ray is done. During the X-ray, you'll be directed as to what position in which you should stand, sit, or lie down. Most X-rays take only a few minutes from start to finish.

What happens following the X-ray?

Following the X-ray, physicians get the information they need to determine a proper course of treatment. This may include medication, which can be administered on site if needed. If you have an injury that needs to be sutured or splinted, the doctors and nurses can take care of those needs immediately as well. Once the immediate problem has been treated, the AccuHealth Urgent Care doctor will provide you with instructions for further care at home.
