X-ray images help physicians detect disease at early stages, reduce need for exploratory surgery, and improve precision when surgery is needed. High-quality images are obtained with the help of a small amount of radiation in order to capture shadows and reflections on photographic or digital plates.
During the exam, you may be asked to hold your breath or remain perfectly still. Some X-rays require a contrast agent, and you may be asked to drink a solution immediately before the X-rays are taken. After initial review, additional X-rays may be required before you leave. Please do not wear clothing or jewelry containing metal.
Great Lakes Medical Imaging now accommodates a broader spectrum of patients with its Siemens Luminos Agile fluoroscopy machine, located in Williamsville at our Park Club Lane location. Technicians can now adjust the height of the table, which offers an open design for patients with limited mobility. Its modern design allows imaging of a wide coverage area in a single procedure.
Fluoroscopy is an enhanced x-ray imaging technique that captures moving images of your internal system on a specially developed monitor by taking a continuous series of images at a very fast rate.
