X-Ray is the original field from which radiology developed, and is probably still the most commonly employed form of radiology. X-rays are still images, and can be done quickly.
The films created by X-rays show different features of the body in various shades of gray. The gray is darkest in those areas that do not absorb X-rays well; the grays are lighter in dense area (like bones) that absorb more of the X-rays.
Appointments are not necessary but a physicians script is necessary to have the X-ray performed.
