X-rays are an important tool in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal diseases, injuries and deformities. The experienced providers at Midwest Spine & Brain Institute may ask you to have an x-ray taken as part of your evaluation.
When you meet with your provider in clinic, he will inform you if he wants x-rays taken. When an x-ray is ordered, a tech will come to your room and escort you to the x-ray area. On occasion you may be asked to change into a gown. After your x-ray has been taken the tech will develop the films and bring them to your provider and he will discuss them with you.
