At TLC we use digital radiography and ultrasound to further evaluate our patients internally when necessary. Radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound image internal structures differently and therefore compliment each other. Radiographs typically evaluate dense structures like bone or gas filled organs like the lungs the best, whereas ultrasound is better at evaluating soft organs like the liver, spleen, and heart for example.
TLC uses a digital system which allows us to easily copy these images for referral purposes or to send them over the internet for further evaluation by a Radiologist. Digital radiography offers may other advantages when compared to radiographs taken on film.
