Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. At Jimenez, each patient that receives x-ray is provided with a CD with their images and digital copy of the physician report.
Medical ultrasound (also known as diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs. At Jimenez, our physicians use this technology to detect musculoskeletal injuries which are not seen on x-rays. These studies are done as an in-office procedure and are usually cover by insurance and provide a very similar image to that of MRI when used appropriately. Diagnostic ultrasound is usually covered by most insurances and do not incur a hefty co-pay like that of MRI studies.
