What is X-ray?
To comprehensively examine the internal structures of the body, a method such as X-ray or radiography is used. With this procedure, doctors receive visual and operational results of the study. Also, radiography allows you to track the effectiveness of treatment without the help of surgeons.
It is important to note that while undergoing the procedure, a person receives some degree of radiation, so doctors do not recommend going through this procedure often. In CLINIC THE MEDICINA, Medicina Roytberg's Clinic JSC, Cone Beam Radiography is used, which has a higher sensitivity. The X-ray machine allows doctors to obtain clear and high-quality images without harming patients.

Preparatory stage for the X-ray procedure
Before undergoing an X-ray, a person needs to remove jewelry, belt, telephone, and metal products. You also need to take off your clothes.
In some cases, special training is required. This means that you should stop eating foods that contain fiber before examining your stomach or lower back. This approach can facilitate procedural actions and reduce gas production in the stomach.
In our institution, doctors will give all the recommendations in advance and prepare the patient 100% for X-ray.
