Like many people, you probably associate X-rays with broken bones. Although X-ray imaging does play a key role in the diagnosis of fractures, this technology can be used for many other purposes as well. For instance, X-rays can be used to check for joint dislocations, kidney stones, and fluid in the lungs.

Do You Need to Go to an ER?
If you’re in pain, you might be inclined to immediately rush to the nearest hospital emergency room. Of course, you can receive the care you need there, but unless you’re facing a true medical emergency, you most likely don’t need an ER—or the crowds, chaos, long wait, and expensive bill that usually go hand-in-hand with an ER visit.
