How we minimize X-ray exposure
We offer a natural approach to health and use many techniques that reduce your X-ray exposure:
Necessary views only: Only the views needed to accurately analyze your problem are taken.
Up-to-date equipment: Today’s X-ray equipment uses the latest technology and safety features.
Regular inspection: Government licensing and inspection assure correct working order and proper safety procedures.
High speed film: Less exposure is required for each view by using faster, more sensitive film stocks.
Electronic timing: High-tech timing devices make exposures 1/100ths of a second more precise.
Intensification screens: Luminescent film cassettes amplify the image and reduce the exposure needed for each view.
Filtration and collimation: Filtering and limiting the beam to the film size avoid exposure to other body parts.
Wedges and shields: Restricting the beam to just the spine and using shields significantly reduce exposures.
Thorough training: Supervising doctors receive over 200 accredited hours of training and government certification.
Years of experience: Predictable, high-quality images are the result of years of experience.
An accurate record of your spine far outweighs the minimal risk. Your chiropractic X-rays will:
Visualize the location of spinal problems
Reveal pathologies and degeneration
Show a history of your spinal stresses
Confirm other examination findings
Make your adjustments more precise
Record structural and functional progress
