On-Site X-Ray Machine

We're equipped with an On-Site X-Ray Machine

An X-ray is usually the first test advised by a physician or orthopaedic surgeon, even in cases which may later require more advanced tests. An ordinary X-ray is a quick, easy and a comparatively cheap test.

With a high quality direct radiography detector, our in-house X-ray machine will help ensure top quality imaging with a quick turnaround.

The level of radiation exposure from a routine X-ray machine is not very harmful, but your doctor will take special precautions if you are pregnant.

X-rays can be useful for diagnosis in following conditions

Traumatic bone fractures, subluxation and dislocation of joints, bone abnormalities like bone tumours, erosions, loss of calcium, tendinitis, bone spurs or congenital abnormalities (birth defects).

Abnormalities of joints, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone caused by an infection), gout, slipped discs, degenerative joints, narrowing of the joint, and changes in the structure of the joints.

Damage to soft tissues, such as cartilage, muscle, tendons, or ligaments that surround a bone.

Bone age study to evaluate growth and development problems in children

Follow up after joint replacement surgeries

Abnormalities in the alignment of the spine such as kyphosis or scoliosis

Certain metabolic and endocrine disorders that cause bony defects of the skull or calcifications within the brain may also be X-rayed for evaluation

In-office X-ray imagines makes for rapid, precise and convenient evaluations

In-office X-ray imaging can be essential for rapid, precise and convenient diagnosis and treatment evaluation.

In cases of X-rays related to bones, an orthopedic surgeon is typically well qualified to read the X-ray himself. In cases of fractures, after the cast is removed, an X-ray is advised to check the status of the fracture before the consequent treatment is commenced. In such cases, it could be dangerous to expect the patient to move out for a test.
