X-rays are commonly used to examine the bones, joints, and lungs of the body. They are a type of radiation that passes through the body and is fast, easy, and painless.
The most commonly performed diagnostic x-ray examination is the chest x-ray. Images produced during a chest x-ray are used to evaluate the lungs, heart, and chest wall, often helping to diagnose conditions like shortness of breath, persistent cough, fever, chest pain, or lung conditions such as pneumonia and certain lung cancers.Learn More
Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within the body. The images produced, called sonograms, can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treatment of a variety of diseases and medical conditions.
As ultrasound scans use sound waves or echoes to make an image instead of radiation, they are safe to use during pregnancy.Learn More
