The radiological equipments of the Center allows us to perform most of the current x-ray examinations, CT and contrast-media procedures excluded. All our diagnostic units are digital models equipped with automatic exposure control. The x-ray examinations are performed with digital radiology systems (CR and DR). All these devices are used to minimize the patient’s amount of radiation exposure and to optimize the image quality.
The x-ray examinations that are performed in the Center are as follows:
- Bones and Joints (of all body parts)
- Soft Tissues
- Tomography of temporo-mandibular joints
- Dental Panoramic (Orthopantomography)
- Cephalometric Teleradiography
- CT cone beam (Dentalscan)
All our examinations are given to the patient as digital prints on film, like the radiographies of the past. This is our choice, in order to enable the attending Physician to see easily and quickly the images, avoiding time-consuming and sometimes unsuccessful loading of the CD on the desk computer. This choice is appreciated, in particular, by Orthopaedics, Dentists, Orthodontists and by all those who need to perform measurements on the x-ray films.
Of course, all the radiographies can be forwarded also as digital files recorded on CD, upon a patient’s request. The reports of dental cone-beam CT are always composed by a CD with the full record of the examination and by film prints of the areas of interest.
