What are x-rays used for?
X-rays harness the power of a specific type of radiation, electromagnetic waves, to provide your doctor with a picture of your body’s internal function. X-rays are most commonly known for their use in the diagnosis of bone fractures. However, x-rays can also be used to diagnose other conditions including breast cancer and pneumonia. At Express Healthcare LLC, your doctor will determine which diagnostic processes are best suited to help them understand your condition.
What are sonograms used for?
Sonography uses high-frequency sound waves to provide your doctor with a digital image of the inside of your body. Sonograms are most often used to diagnose conditions that impact the soft tissues of the body. Sonograms are visual images of your organs, blood flow, and tissue to help your healthcare provider examine blood vessels, abdomen, breasts, reproductive organs, heart, and the prostate, as well as other parts of the body. Sonograms are used during pregnancy to monitor fetal development and ensure that babies develop healthily and at a normal rate.
What is the difference between sonograms and ultrasounds?
While these terms are often used interchangeably, they actually refer to different parts of the same procedure. The ultrasound is the technique that produces the sonogram, which is the important image itself. As such, regardless of which term is used to describe your diagnostic imaging, you and your doctor will be able to effectively discuss your condition and results, so you can move forward with an effective treatment plan. When you come into one of Express Healthcare LLC’s walk-in locations, your doctor will discuss your symptoms and decide whether an ultrasound could be useful in reaching an exact diagnosis.
