An X-ray machine is a medical imaging device that uses a form of high-energy penetrating magnetic radiation to visualize the interior of a patient's body.[1]

In the Emergency Department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, X-rays are used to quickly assess the condition of the neck, chest, spine, pelvis, or other body part of a patient in critical condition. The ED has a portable X-ray machine available, which from season 4 onward is often seen being operated by X-ray Tech Mike.

In addition to portable X-ray machines, it is quite likely that the hospital has other X-ray machines available in other departments, such as radiology.
