X-Ray and Fluoroscopy

An x-ray uses a small amount of radiation to create images of your bones and internal organs. X-rays are most often used to detect bone or joint problems, or to check the heart and lungs.

All Technologists at St. Mary’s are registered with The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in addition to being licensed with the State of Illinois.

Fluoroscopy uses x-ray to produce real-time video images. Fluoroscopy is a special x-ray technique that makes it possible to see internal organs in motion.
