doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of  the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems  with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify  problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand  against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is  between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare  professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as  X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
