Although traditional analog x-rays are considered safe, digital x-rays produce up to 80% less radiation. So while it is unlikely that you will develop any adverse side effects with a traditional x-ray, you will be even less likely to experience an adverse reaction with a digital one. Images created by a digital x-ray are much easier to store and transfer, and their quality is less exposed to degradation.

When undergoing a diagnostic procedure such as an x-ray, in nearly all cases you are required to receive a referral from a physician. The reason for this is that doctors are medical experts and know when an x-ray is medically necessary to diagnose a condition. If patients were left to decide when an x-ray is needed, there would be a lot of unnecessary tests performed, which cost both the patient and the clinic time and resources to perform. Unnecessary testing can result in adverse side-effects, especially when overused. That is why it is important to seek the advice of a medical professional before undergoing any diagnostic testing.

There are many factors that come into play regarding turnaround time for x-rays results. The rate you receive the results of an X-ray at will depend on:
When not enough examination and analysis has been done, releasing imaging results too early or too late can have negative effects on the patient experience. Several studies have found that delays in delivering results of a scan can cause patients to experience anxiety, as the assumption of a lengthier delivery time is indicative that something bad was found in the scans.
