X-ray is a diagnostic test where ionizing radiations pass through the examined body thus enabling an image to be produced on film.



Bone x-rays are ordered to detect disease or injury to the bone such as broken bones, tumors, and other problems. They can determine bone density, texture, erosion, and changes in bone relationships. Bone x-rays also evaluate the joints for diseases such as osteoarthritis.

Kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB) x-ray study is a diagnostic test that is used for the detection of kidney stones and diagnosis of some gastrointestinal disorders. Injecting contrast media help to evaluate the shape position and function of kidneys, ureters and bladder.
