Digital X-Ray & Fluoroscopy

X-ray refers to procedures that use standardized radiation to view parts of the body. This type of exam includes conventional x-rays and fluoroscopy (continuous or live x-ray). Lead shielding and a very low dose of radiation is used which makes these types of procedures extremely safe as a diagnostic exam.
Conventional radiography (x-ray) is a simple and painless procedure that allows the radiologist to analyze the bony and soft tissue anatomy. The average x-ray takes 10 - 20 minutes.

Fluoroscopy is an enhanced x-ray that produces a continuous or live image on a television-like monitor. It is especially useful in diagnosing problems of the digestive tract, kidneys and gallbladder. C-arm Fluoroscopy is also used in pain management procedures and radiological intervention. Sometimes a contrast agent is used to guide the procedure.
