Diagnostic (X-RAY) Imaging

What is Diagnostic Imaging?

Diagnostic Imaging is an X-ray that uses radiation to take pictures of bones and organs inside the body. This technique and process of creating visual representation is used to determine if a bone is broken, seeing internal organs and diagnosing and treating diseases. A small amount of radiation is directed at a particular area of the body, and the image is captured either on a special image recording plate or digitally. Stephens County Hospital’s X-ray machines are stationary as well as portable to allow images to be taken anywhere in the facility.
