A radiology x-ray is a picture that is created through the use of a low dose of radiation. X-rays are intended to evaluate internal organs, lungs, and bones in order to diagnose conditions such as kidney stones, broken bones, cancer, pneumonia, and arthritis. The x-ray center at First Care Clinic uses digital x-rays, which saves pictures as digital files for optimal efficiency.
Also known as sonography and ultrasound imaging, ultrasound imaging involves the use of a probe and ultrasound gel that is placed directly on a patient’s skin. High frequency sound waves are transferred from the probe through the gel and into the body of a patient. The sounds that bounce back are collected via a transducer and transferred to a computer to produce an image of these sound waves.
Ultrasound imaging can assist physicians in evaluating pain, swelling, infection, and other symptoms. In addition, ultrasounds can examine a wide variety of the body’s organs, diagnose heart conditions, and guide procedures.
