Digital Radiography (X-rays)

Radiography is useful for the assessment of internal organs in the chest and abdomen as well as bones of the skull, spine and legs. Using digital imaging allows fewer retakes of x-rays and a reduction in radiation doses used.

When chest radiographs are performed with the AmberCare Wellness Plans, the internal organs (such as the lungs, heart, thoracic lymph nodes) are assessed for any abnormal growths or structural changes that may not be detectable on an external examination. Early detection can then lead to better management or cure of particular areas of concern.
