What’s an X-ray?

X-ray is the most common type of diagnostic imaging test. It uses electromagnetic waves to create a two-dimensional picture of the inside of your body. If you ever had a broken bone, you probably had an X-ray to diagnose it.

What’s fluoroscopy?

Fluoroscopy uses X-rays to create a real-time, moving picture—like an X-ray movie. That means your physician can use it to see how a body part moves and works.

Access advanced X-ray technology in West Michigan. Corewell Health was among the first in the country to offer Multitom Rax—an X-ray system designed to increase your comfort.

Our advanced technology features robotic arms that move around you to take pictures. That means you won’t have to reposition yourself often during the exam―so you’ll experience less discomfort and a shorter exam. This technology is available at Corewell Health Butterworth Hospital (part of Corewell Health Grand Rapids Hospitals).
