Digital radiography has replaced the traditional x-ray films in much the same way that the digital camera has replaced traditional camera films. Using this technology, we are able to view images instantly, adjust them for better quality. This means less stress on our patients since we are taking fewer images.
It also allows us to save them on a disc, or send them digitally, if necessary, to a board-certified radiologist or specialist for review.
The images taken in our radiography department are reviewed by the doctor then transferred to a laptop so the images can be viewed and discussed in the room with you.
‘Laser’ is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Highly concentrated light rays are transmitted through a pen’like laser scalpel to perform the functions of a traditional scalpel blade.
Our goal is to always have our patients back in their favorite lap or bed as soon as possible. However, to keep everyone safe they will from time to time require housing and we have taken the utmost care to make sure their time with us is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
The ultrasound machine generates a high-frequency sound beam through a wand that is strategically placed on a patient. As the beam passes harmlessly through the patient, a computer is used to generate an image based on the amount of sound reflected back.
The KLaser is a Class IV laser which is gaining wide use for its ground-breaking therapeutic effects. Laser therapy, or ‘photobiomodulation’ is a highly effective alternative treatment to aid in the reduction of inflammation, pain, and swelling.
