The first x-ray of a human body was made by Dr. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895. Although x-rays have been available for over 100 years, this comparatively simple and inexpensive exam continues to play a pivotal role in the evaluation of bone trauma, sports injuries, arthritis, lung disease (including pneumonia, emphysema and cancer), heart disease and detection of stones and calcifications throughout the body.
X-ray is a quick, painless and affordable imaging modality. In fact, x-ray remains the fastest, most accessible and most often used imaging test today. At all Health Scan Imaging locations, we have upgraded all of our x-ray devices to faster and more convenient digital technology.
As a result, your x-rays and report can be sent over the internet immediately or recorded on a CD for later viewing on any PC by your referring physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner.
