What an X-ray Clinic Does
The clinics which give services of some medical imaging does diagnosing of and also treat some disease which are in the body and there are a variety of techniques that are used in imaging such as the x-ray and computer tomography.
Other techniques of imaging are ultrasound, radiography and they include also magnetic resonance and position emission tomography and these methods are utilized in treating and diagnosing diseases and the radiology that is interventional.
The procedures of medical x-ray guides the imaging technology and this science of radiology utilizes medical, imaging so as to be able to treat or diagnose diseases in the body.
Radiology is work done by a skilled worker called a radiographer and a diagnostic radiologist who are trained specially as doctors and they read or interpret the images and then write a report about what they have found.
Radiographers diagnosis or impressions from the radiology and with this they use the interpretation of the images to know what kind of disease it is and how to treat it and they have very advanced training in radiology matters.
Clinicians requests for the x-ray and the medical images are digitally stored in some communication system or picture archives where there may be observed by the team of healthcare and can be compared with other future images.
An image is made by the rays which pass through and are detected and this makes it possible to know what the patient is ailing from.
X-ray passes via the body and are then filtered in a device termed as a x-ray filter or grid so as to decrease and scatter and also strike the undeveloped film that is tightly held to the screen that emits light of phosphors placed in a cassette that is light tight.
Currently the film-screen is being replaced by digital radiography as well as the EOS imaging where the x-rays strikes the sensors which convert those signals and converts them to information that is digital.
The images are displayed on the screens computer and the sensors in the digital radiography has a plate while in the EOS system the system has slot-scanning and a sensor which is linear and scans vertically the body of the patient.
Except for the huge amount of CT scan data, digital imaging as well as MR scans there is numerous entities of diseases that can be diagnose by using radiographs that are plain, and there is the mammography method which is utilizes to diagnose and do the evaluation of osteoporosis and breast cancer as well as congenital skeletal anomalies, fractures, benign tumours, pneumonia and diverse kinds of arthritis.
