We are proud to offer digital radiology. This advance in technology allows several benefits when compared to traditional film radiology. The images are easily enlarged, and the contrast of the films can be manipulated to target and focus on small areas of the film to make visualization easier. This allows for fewer films to be taken and less radiation exposure for the patient. The radiographs are also processed quicker requiring less time to take. Lastly, digital radiography allows us to easily send cases for in depth evaluation by boarded radiologist when concerns arise. This allows us to provide the best care for our patients.
We also now offer ultrasonography. This imaging modality allows us to see in finer detail things that may not be apparent with radiographs alone. Ultrasound imaging allows real time visualization of internal structures for in depth analysis in a non-invasive way. We may utilize this to scan individual organs like the liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, bladder, GI tract, prostate, uterus, testes, heart and lungs.
