Conventional radiograph or X-Ray utilizes focused radiation to produce an image on film or digital scanner. It is the standard method used to evaluate the bony structures of the foot and ankle region. It is used to diagnose fractures, arthritis, foreign bodies, and other structural abnormalities of the foot and ankle. X-ray has limited ability to show soft tissue injury. Pregnant women, especially in their first trimester, are advised to avoid x-ray or other radiation exposure.
Please note in-office x-rays are currently only available at the Berlin office.
