(X-RAY/FLUOROSCOPY) 

Q. What is X-Ray (Digital Radiography)?

A. X-ray is the oldest, most widely used form of medical imaging. An X-ray picture is called a Radiograph. Capital Imaging employs the most advanced form of X-ray imaging called Direct Digital Radiography. The technology is the same as that of a digital camera. X-ray film is no longer required, meaning your X-ray exam is a faster, more highly advanced study with only a minimal amount of radiation.

Q. What is Fluoroscopy?

A. If you think of X-ray as a still picture, then fluoroscopy is a moving picture. Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses contrast material and X-rays to visualize joints and internal organs in motion. An X-ray beam is passed through the area being examined and a Digital image is evaluated by the radiologist on a high resolution TV monitor.
