X-rays

X-raysAn X-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test exposing part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of any bone in the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

New Digital X-ray Room 
Parkland Health Center added a digital radiographic room equipped with Siemens Ysio digital X-ray equipment. This equipment provides a safer, faster X-ray experience for patients. The digital image means the technologist never has to leave your side. This was a gift from the Parkland Health Center Foundation.

An X-ray:

  • Diagnoses broken bones or joint dislocation
  • Demonstrates proper alignment and stabilization of bony fragments following treatment of a fracture
  • Guides orthopedic surgery, such as spine repair/fusion, joint replacement and fracture reductions
  • Looks for injury, infection, arthritis, abnormal bone growths, and bony changes seen in metabolic conditions
  • Assists in the detection and diagnosis of bone cancer
  • Locates foreign objects in soft tissues around or in bones
