WHY WOULD I NEED AN X-RAY?

To help detect problems in the bones, such as fractures, pneumonia, or evidence of arthritis in the joints.

X-rays are the most frequently used form of medical imaging. An X-ray image is created when a small amount of radiation is passed through a body part. The image is produced as a result of the ways in which different internal structures absorb the radiation. Bones absorb radiation so X-rays are very good a detecting injuries to the bone.

Mayfair offers walk-in X-ray services in Regina and 11 convenient locations in Calgary. Please note, X-ray is not offered at our Cochrane, Southcentre or Sunpark clinics.
