In brief: Depends on symptoms
Interpretation of imaging depends a lot on information supplied as to reason for exam. Mainly bones are visualized and evidence of fracture, arthritis, subuxation of hips , disc disease of lower spine and tumor can be seen.
Soft tissue masses and calcifications can also sometimes be detected.
