X-rays are the oldest and most popular form of diagnostic medical imaging. They are performed using a form of ionizing radiation that is projected through the body onto a piece of specialized film. Different tissues have different densities and therefore absorb this radiation in different amounts, causing the film to record only what is not absorbed. It is the same principle used by photo cameras to capture images using visible light.
X-rays use very low doses of radiation and therefore are often done before more complex testing.
Islamabad Diagnostic Center first time introduced DR system back in 2009. It features outstanding image quality with minimal radiation dosage and provides the capability for a wide range of applications, including examinations of the skull, spinal column, abdomen and extremities.

Most X-Rays do not require any kind of preparation on the part of the patient. Abdominal and pelvic studies are mostly preferred with empty stomach for detailed study.
If you have recently had a test that required Barium or a contrast injection you must notify us and schedule your X-Ray for at least 3-5 days after the contrast study.
