WHAT IS AN X-RAY

In the context of urgent care, X-ray machines provide a window into bones, organs, and tissues, aiding healthcare professionals in making accurate and informed diagnoses.
This non-invasive imaging technique is a game-changer, allowing for swift assessments and effective treatment plans.
