Why X Rays

.

Both visible light and x-rays consist of photon particles conveyed over electromagnetic energy. When carefully controlled, this energy can be used to reveal the internal structure of the body. We find weight bearing pictures very helpful as they:

  • Provide a structural record of your spine

  • Locate fractures or other signs of trauma or abnormality
  • Identify evidence of long term spinal degeneration
  • Confirm other examination findings

Today, the chiropractic profession is a leader in the reduction of x-ray exposure and patient safety.

  • We only take necessary pictures
  • We use fully certified equipment
  • Intensification screens reduce energy used
  • Filtration removes unneeded frequencies
  • Collimation narrows the energy beam
  • Sensitive films shorten exposure time
  • Equipment is regularly inspected
