Digital radiography is quick and powerful, allowing Dr. Peterson to accomplish more work with less effort, time and expense. This gives an excellent way to share detailed results with patients and explain care plans. The images are available immediately and can be easily stored and modified. These digital files are easy to send electronically, making digital X-ray result easily shareable among healthcare professionals to better assist you as the patient. An added benefit of using a digital system is that it exposes patients to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays. And when looking at the costs and hassles of conventional film-based systems, there really is no comparison.
We utilize state-of-the-art technology with digital laser-aligned radiography for the most accurate and effective x-ray available today. When standard x-ray technology is inadequate for this purpose, a digital x-ray is taken. Having a state-of-the-art radiography system isn’t just useful for diagnostics, it’s also helpful to view the spine in the midst of the treatment plan. Remember, when it comes to your spine, there’s no one-size-fits-all plan. A tailored approach is always going to offer better results than a generic one. Accurate X-rays are the key to unlocking an individualized treatment plan. The x-ray images are analyzed by Dr. Peterson to determine the three-dimensional displacement of the upper cervical vertebrae. Be assured that radiological examinations are performed only when clinically necessary to insure proper patient care.
