In brief: Many things
Among others, an xray of a hand could show bone deformities, fractures, arthritis, gout, osteoporosis, necrosis, foreign body and even cancer.

In brief: And some other things
I agree with dr. Suchecki, and would add that there are lots of things that an x-ray -won't- show, like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers, cysts, and tendon injuries.
An x-ray may still be helpful, but could be "normal" in those conditions.
