Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body using of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image on TV screen which you will be able to see. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) or injected substances are is involved in ultrasound imaging. Ultrasound is painless, harmless and provides rapid assessment of your body.
X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of diagnostic imaging. It is the fastest way for a medical provider to view and assess broken bones. It can also be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of diseases, including osteoporosis, disc disease, and fractures. During the procedures, electromagnetic radiation passes through the body onto film which is now digitized and displayed on a computer screen. Dense structures like bone absorb most of the radiation and appear white on the digital image. Structures that are less dense appear in lighter shades of gray and black. Digital x-rays are used to diagnose a wide range of illnesses and injuries, including broken bones, bowel obstruction, scoliosis, disc disease and other abnormalities.
