About Our Service

If you've ever broken a bone, an X-ray was probably used to diagnose it. An X-ray machine uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to create a “negative image” of the inside of your body. It's our most often used tool for diagnostic imaging.

X-rays do more than help us diagnose broken bones. We also use them for screening, diagnosing and treating other medical conditions such as infections, arthritis and tumors.

Features of X-Ray


A myelogram helps with X-ray or CT scan imaging, by injecting contrast dye into the spinal column. This process provides clearer answers about problems in the spinal column, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, bone spurs or arthritic discs.
