X-ray technology is the oldest and most commonly used form of Medical Diagnostic Imaging equipment. X-ray use ionizing radiation to produce images of a person’s internal structure by sending x-ray beams through the body, which are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material. Also included in x-ray devices are mammography, interventional radiology, computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR).

The Radiology Coach will guide you through the process to ensure you are getting the most for your budget, practice, and imaging needs.
