    Just This Week

    I had one just this week to confirm my doctor's diagnosis of pneumonia.  I like the fact that radiology has gone digital now so as soon as the x-ray's been taken the radiologist can look at it and often you get to see it right away too.  No more waiting for the film to...

    Quite A Few....

    I am sure I have had some that I can't remember. The one I do remember is when I hurt my fingers during gymnastics and they had to be xrayed. I have also had lots of dental xrays as well, especially recently.

    I've had an number of X-rays taken of me over

    the years and apart from having to lay in uncomfortable positions they haven't been too bad. The one I remember most vividly was the x-ray they took of my knees after I was knocked down by a car. I arrived at A&E and the doctor did a quick assessment of my injuries (which...

    So Many

    I have had so many in my lifetime that I have lost count.  Between x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, full body bone scans and a myelograph, I should be glowing.

    I was in excruciating pain in March of 2011 after my hip was broken. It took not one but two visits to the emergency room to determine this. 5 xrays and a CT scan later the brilliant physicians saw that it was broken and immediately took me to the operating room. But i get ahead...
