Emergency Digital X-Ray Physicians in San Antonio?
The X-Ray examination is one of the most commonly used tests in an emergency room environment. It is a versatile test that is used in routine care regularly, but also has many applications in urgent diagnosis. X-rays can detect all kinds of ailments, including many cancers, broken bones, and foreign objects. A gunshot wound victim could need an urgent X-ray to find the bullet so that it can be removed, or to see where bleeding needs to be stopped in the wounded area.
What is Digital X-Ray?
Digital X-ray's are used to diagnose a number of conditions and health issues. This test is done using beams of light that pass through the body, identifying different materials based on their density. For example, the air in your lungs shows up black, or “invisible” because the light goes right through it. Muscle and fat will appear grey, while bones, metal, and most foreign objects will appear as white. This allows doctors to examine the images and diagnose many conditions. Some digital X-rays will require a contrast substance to get better clarity. This is done using substances like barium and iodine.
Digital x-ray Includes:
- Fractures and arthritis
- Dental decay
- Bone cancer
- Lung infection
- Lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Enlarged heart
- Blood vessel blockages
- Digestive issues
- Swallowed objects
