IX. Radiographic Imaging (“X-Rays”)
- Radiography uses ionizing radiation (x-rays) to image any part of the human anatomy from head to toe.
- This technique is well-suited to the skeleton.
B. Facilities, Technical Capabilities & Limitations
- There are five radiography (x-ray) units available for human research.
- All units produce high-quality digital images.
- Images are viewable and archived on the Enterprise-wide McKesson PACS; CDs/DVDs can be created as needed.
- Radiology reports are viewable through SCM/AEHR and can be printed as needed.
