Digital radiographs with an expert opinion from a board-certified radiologist. Digital radiographs are not only used for diagnosing fractures. They are also regularly used for diagnosing cancers, finding abdominal obstructions, and viewing the heart and lung fields. The digital radiograph allows for instant, clear images that can be fine-tuned with our advanced software. This science permits easy transferability which gives us the ability, if necessary to send the images to a board-certified radiologist who evaluates the images. Within a few hours of receiving the images, a written report is emailed back to our practice. Patients needing digital radiographs are admitted into our hospital for the day. Light sedation may be used to ensure quality images for those patients who may experience discomfort during the positioning for radiographs or for patients that may be nervous. Radiographs provide us with a great deal of important information to assist us in diagnosing and treating our patients.
