What is radiology and how does it work?
Radiology is a medical imaging technique used mainly for the purposes of examining, identifying and locating. X-rays and ionizing rays allow us to examine various regions of the body and assist in establishing a medical diagnosis. This technique is also used to locate and identify the nature of any foreign bodies.
Radiology for the purpose of examination involves taking X-ray images of certain areas of the body. During the appointment, the patient is asked to place the area to examine on the plate of the X-ray machine. The patient must remain still and hold their breath for a fraction of a second. We can do this examination in our clinics, upon request and without an appointment.
This examination is not without risk, since it uses X-rays and ionizing radiation. Consequently, radiology is not recommended for pregnant women because it can be detrimental to the growth of the fetus. If you are pregnant, it is important to inform the clinic staff.
