Digital Radiography

A digital x-ray is a non-invasive procedure that focuses a small dose of ionizing radiation to certain areas of the body to produce a clear image. X-rays are most commonly used to:

  • Determine whether a bone is dislocated or broken
  • Assist in the detection and diagnosis of cancer
  • Screen for lung and heart diseases
  • Diagnose the cause of cough or chest pain
