X-rays are a type of high-energy radiation that exist on the energy spectrum and that occur naturally in the atmosphere. An X-ray machine produces short, focussed bursts of X-rays. The rays pass easily through fluids and soft tissues of the body however, dense tissue such as bone and other masses will block some of the X-rays and show up white on a black background. X-ray also known as radiographs, are relatively quick to perform and a cornerstone of medical imaging.
Ace Radiology makes use of the latest digital X-ray equipment throughout all its practices. Unlike traditional X-ray in which manual exposures are taken by a technician; the rate of exposure to X-ray radiation is managed digitally to ensure the clearest pictures and the lowest possible radiation level. Newer digital X-ray machines like those at Ace Radiology expose patients to a very low level of radiation. Coupled with our technicians’ years of experience in taking X-ray images, Ace Radiology’s team of radiographers produce high quality images that are safer for patients.
