Diagnostic X-Ray Services at North Oaks

Diagnostic radiology is the branch of medicine best known for taking and reading X-rays, and is the nucleus of almost every doctor’s diagnosis. Being able to detect disease sooner and pinpoint its location more accurately is a huge factor in stopping disease in its tracks. Because of the evolution of X-rays and the field of diagnostic radiology, medicine is being changed on a daily basis.

Fluoroscopy X-ray is “real-time” imaging used by medical professionals to visualize internal organs while they are in motion. Sometimes a contrast material is used in conjunction with fluoroscopy to help medical experts see how the substance is moving through the body. These images are captured on a video screen and help doctors detect conditions such as colon cancer, reflux, ulcers and causes of abdominal pain.
