Since our office has a state of the art, hospital grade digit x-ray machine, we are able to acquire x-ray images during your office visit if needed. Not every condition requires x-rays; X-rays are only obtained if they help in the diagnosis or treatment of your medical condition.
Digital x-ray uses digital x-ray sensors instead of tradition film. The images are able to be sent directly to our computer system, bypassing the need for chemical processing of the films. We are also able to use our computer programs to enhance and manipulate the image in ways that help aid in diagnosis of the condition. Another advantage is less radiation exposure to produce an image than conventional x-ray requires.
