Department of X-Ray
Advanced Imaging technology reduced 90% of radiation then traditional film x-rays. Better for the environment
because digital x-rays don't required developing and can be viewed immediately in computer monitor
Clear image quality for diagnosis and less time for the patients
Types of X-Rays
Standard Computed Tomography
A standard computed tomography or otherwise known as computerized axial tomography is
performed in a hospital or at a radiologist’s office. The test aids in obtaining detailed
images of areas inside the body, typically for the diagnosis of circulatory system such as
blood vessel aneurysms, blood clots, and coronary artery disease.
Kidney, Ureter and Bladder X-ray
Also known as KUB X-Rays, it is performed to assess the
abdominal pain, or to assess the organs and structures of
the urinary and/or gastrointestinal (GI) system. A KUB
X-ray is practically the first diagnostic procedure used
for the assessment of the urinay system.
Teeth and Bones X-rays
These x-rays give a high level of detail about bones, teeth and
supporting tissues of the mouth. These x-rays enable dentists
to look at the tooth roots, the status of the developing tooth and
health of the bony areas
A small test that uses radiation to produce image of the
bones, tissues and organs of the body. The doctor
prescribes a chest x-ray for a number of reasons like
shortness of breath, fever, chestpain and presitent
cough. It is a quick and effective test that aids in
analyzing the health of some of the most vital organs
This type of X-raus is done to assess the lungs by comparing
the upper, middle & lower zones of the lungs. The asymmetry of
lung density is represented as either abnormal whiteness (increases density)
or abnormal blackness (decreased density). Once you spot the
asymmetry, the next step is to decide which side is abnormal.
If there is an area that is different from the surrounding
ipsilateral lung, then this is likely to be the abnormal area.
An imaging test to look at structures and organs in the
belly, this x-ray encompasses the small and large intestines,
liver and stomach. It is one of the first tests to find a cause
of nausea, stomach pain, voimiting and swelling. Other tests like
intravenous pyelography, ultrasound and CT scan are also done
to find more specific problems.
Why is it done?
The X-Ray tests are dine to check for broek bones
and abnormal activities in the body. It is mostly
quick and painless procedure and a very effective
way of looking at the bones and other body parts.
Your doctor mat prescribe you an X-Ray if you
experience prolonged explainable pain in your body, as an X-Ray
produces images of the affected organs, bones and tissues of the body.
Here are a variety of problems which can be detected with the help
of an x-ray:
Problems in the chesh
Some kind of lung condition such as
chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, penumonia and pneumothorax
Heart Conditions such as Heart Failure etc and for
viewing its size & shape
To monitor progress of the chest area after a surgery
To find objects like coins or small pieces of metal in the lungs
Tooth Complications such as Loose teeht and dental abscesses
Scoliosis (irregular curving of the spine)
Cancerous and Non-Cancerous Bone Tumors
Dysphagia(Difficulty or Discomfort in swallowing)
