Physicians have utilized radiographs (X-Rays) for over a century. As a diagnostic tool, X-Ray is still an excellent modality in detecting bone trauma and disorders and soft tissue diseases. Chest X-Rays can help identify pneumonia or pulmonary edema and abdominal X-Rays can help in identifying intestinal obstructions. Physicians often order X-Ray in conjuction with another study to help diagnose medical problems. Dimensional Imaging has X-Rays at all of its facilities. Although appointments are encouraged, walkin X-Rays are always welcome.
Our Sarasota center also performs fluoroscopy guided arthrograms for MRI. This study requires one of our highly trained radiologist to use X-Ray to inject the appropiate amount of contrast into a joint space to help diagnose shoulder and hip pathology.
