An X-ray is a test that will produce images of the structures present within your body. This type of testing projects X-ray beams into your body. The beams are absorbed in different amounts resulting in images that show the colors of white, gray and black. The white areas represent dense materials within your body such as bones. Fat and muscle show up as shades of gray. The air in your body shows up as black.
What types of injuries show up on X-rays?
Many different types of injuries can be shown on an X-ray. These injuries can include, but are not limited to:
- Fractured Bones
- Fractured Teeth
- Bone Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Swallowed Objects
Often, injuries that are shown on X-ray films can be traumatic in nature.
How do the results of my X-ray get determined?
Many times, an X-ray is reviewed by a radiologist shortly after it is taken. He interprets the scan and reports his findings to the doctor who prescribed the test. This doctor will then go over the results with you and make a final diagnosis.
Are X-rays often used for litigation or lawsuit purposes?
Yes. Where an X-ray shows a traumatic injury, such as a broken bone or tooth, the X-ray is extremely relevant to the case. Whenever an X-Ray is taken, your attorney will want to know the results of the test. If the injuries are causally related to the traumatic event, then a claim can be made against the defendant’s insurance company.
In What Types of Cases are X-rays Often Used?
X-rays can be used in all types of injury cases. These include, but are not limited to:
- Car Accidents
- Truck and Tractor Trailer Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Nursing Home Neglect & Elder Abuse
- Mass Transit Accidents (SEPTA, NJ Transit, and other common carriers)
