Radiographic (X-ray) exams are performed by highly trained professionals who specialize in the usage of radiographic equipment, patient care, and radiation safety. Projectional radiography is the cornerstone of modern medical imaging, and can be used to image almost every part of the human body. When necessary, the chiropractors at Able Body Health Clinic can use X-ray to help rule-out any serious disorders or injuries that may be the cause of patients pain.
Chiropractors in Canada receive over 300 hours of education in radiology covering a full range of topics from protection to X-ray interpretation and diagnosis. Governments in every province have recognized the training and competence of chiropractors to take and interpret X-rays.
Able Body Health Clinic offers state of the art digital radiography, a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. The primary advantage of this method for the patient is that less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar quality to conventional film-based radiography.
