X-Ray and Fluoroscopy
At Washington Radiology, we offer the full complement of general X-ray and advanced Fluoroscopy studies. X-ray is a long-standing imaging technology used in many different ways as part of a medical assessment. It is often considered the initial study for an easy and quick evaluation. X-ray technology requires a small amount of radiation to create the images of the area being evaluated.
X-ray services for all age groups and health needs.
X-ray and contrast better visualize structures during movement.
The ability of X-ray to penetrate tissues and bones varies according to the composition and mass of the structure of the body. Radiation does not easily pass through some larger bone structures because of the amount of calcium; sometimes a more detailed technology like CT may also be ordered.
