doctor holding an XrayUntil around 100 years ago, a brief period in historical terms, in medicine there was no way of understanding what was occurring within the person’s body without carrying out an invasive examination of his body. In 1895, x-ray imaging was invented, bringing about a real revolution in the medical approach. Today, x-ray examinations are one of the most important and common diagnostic tools in the world of medicine.

At the sophisticated imaging institute at Herzliya Medical Center Hospital, examinations are performed in a wide range of fields, including x-ray examinations. The clinical staff, composed of professional radiographers and specialist radiologists, utilize the most modern and advanced apparatus, providing patients with digital x-ray images and fluoroscopy studies of high quality and at a low level of radiation.

X-ray imaging – the technical aspect

X-ray images are made using special rays (x-rays). X-rays aimed during imaging at the human body penetrate and are absorbed in objects that have high density. The higher the density of the object reached by the ray, the more radiation absorbed, yielding a range of white/grey colors on the image, allowing the organs/structures to be assessed.

The benefit provided by x-ray technology in medicine

Regular x-ray images provide the physician with a “glimpse” into the patient’s body and assessment of some of its internal structures:

  • Bones are well demonstrated, and they can be assessed for diseases, fractures or dislocation of the bone from its normal anatomic locations.
  • The chest can be assessed, making it possible to discern inflammation, chronic diseases, tumors, pathologic fractures of bones in the chest, and the size of the heart shadow, which could indicate heart problems.
  • An abdominal x-rays, it is possible to discern the various abdominal organs, such as the condition of the bowel, urinary system, liver, etc.
  • X-rays enable a range of additional examinations of body structures, such as mammography and more.
