X-rayshelp determine whether a bone has been fractured or damaged by conditions such as an infection, arthritis, or other diseases.  X-ray has greatly enhanced our ability to diagnose small bone spurs and fractures that usually go unrecognized. Other reasons for conventional X-rays on your feet are to:

  • Assess whether a child's bones are growing normally
  • Determine whether bones are properly set after treating a fracture
  • Locate foreign objects (such as pieces of glass or metal) in a wound
  • Evaluate changes in the bones from infections, arthritis, or other bone disease

**Pregnant women, especially those in their first trimester, are advised against having X-rays because the radiation may harm the unborn child.
