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.
