Often, specialists cannot properly diagnose a condition or injury by means of a simple, non-invasive medical examination and palpation. In such cases, diagnostic imaging (or medical imaging) is called for. An image of the inside of the body is created using techniques such as radiography or ultrasound scans.
Tip: if you are pregnant, you must tell the specialist before having an X-ray as the radiation X-rays emit be harmful to the unborn child.
