Convenient On-Site X-Ray Services
In order to effectively treat injuries, the first step is always diagnosis. Depending on the injury, a variety of different instruments may be needed to accurately give a diagnosis. For injuries like fractures, broken bones and a number of other ailments, x-ray machines are predominantly the go-to apparatus that physicians use to diagnose.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation and are used in medicine to capture photographs inside patients’ bodies for the purpose of diagnosing different ailments. The most well-known use of x-rays comes in determining whether or not a patient has broken a bone. Since x-rays have an extremely short wavelength, they have the ability to travel through most materials, including organic soft tissue, which allows physicians to get a clear look at the bone.
X-rays can provide diagnostic information on more than just broken bones. We use our on-site radiology services to diagnose:
