What is a Digital X-Ray?

Digital X-RAY (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the

body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

Digital X-ray is used to:

  • Diagnose broken bones or joint dislocation.
  • Guide orthopedic surgery, such as spine, joint replacement and fracture reductions.
  • Assist in the detection and diagnosis of bone cancer.
  • Benign tumors (such as polyps)
  • Cancer
  • Scarring
  • Severe indigestion
  • Ulcers
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Blockages

This is also great news for patients who require the care of specialists. The Digital X-Rays taken may now be burned onto a disk before the patient leaves the office to allow for easy record keeping and transport to other physicians who may need to view the x-rays.

To schedule a consultation or appointment, call (828) 209-1900.

The digital x-ray department is open to patients as well as non-patients of the practice.
