What is digital tomosynthesis?
A type of x-ray that produces images of structures within the body in slices. The x-ray tube moves over the patient through an arc of 20-40 degrees, taking a series of pulsed exposures.
The computer then reconstructs the x-ray data into a series of image slices at various depths from within the body.
It is similar to a CT scan in the respect, but delivers a lower x-ray dose than a CT scan. ~1/2 the dose of a CT scanner.
Our digital tomosynthesis service includes:
- Orthopedic/skeletal imaging – for fractures and non-union
- Abdominal imaging – for kidney stones
