A common procedure to produce static images of internal tissues, bones and organs, X-ray tests view internal structures for diagnostic purposes. X-ray exams are particularly useful in diagnosing bone injuries and tumors. With Southwoods’ investment in complete digital systems, this diagnostic test provides clear, sharp and highly detailed images instantly. The elimination of traditional X-ray film processing assures a high quality exam and quicker results to the patient.
Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures that uses digital technology to reveal a particular body part and its motion. This type of imaging exam is commonly used in a functional study of the gastrointestinal system, which enables the radiologist to see the movement of intestines. Southwoods is the only local facility that can provide fluoroscopy services outside of a hospital and in the convenience of a freestanding facility.
