How We Can Help
X-rays Treatment Information
We use X-ray images to examine bones and organs, such as the lungs, heart, kidneys and liver. Computer software is used to make images sharp and detailed. These enhanced X-rays are delivered to our radiologists quickly, minimizing your wait for a diagnosis. X-ray technology continues to advance, reducing the amount of radiation needed to ensure effective imaging.
Services we provide include:
- Bone X-ray. We view your bones in detail with X-rays. This allows us to detect signs of many conditions, including fractures and dislocations, bone fragments and arthritis.
- Chest X-ray. Images of your upper torso allow us to detect signs of various conditions, such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer.
- Upper GI X-ray. A contrast agent (barium) given as a drink allows us to view your stomach and other parts of your upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This reveals signs of ulcers, tumors, blockages and other conditions.
- Lower GI X-ray. Barium given as an enema allows us to view your colon and other parts of your lower GI tract. With this exam we can detect signs of benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous) tumors and inflammatory bowel disease.
