  • X-Ray

X-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Are especially useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system (bones), but are also useful for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. Some notable examples are the very common chest X-ray, which can be used to identify lung diseases such as pneumonia, lung cancer or pulmonary edema, and the abdominal X-ray, which can detect ileus (blockage of the intestine), free air (from visceral perforations) and free fluid (in ascites).

  • Mammography

Mammography is the process of using low-dose X-rays to examine the human breast. It is used to look for different types of tumors and cysts. Mammography has been proven to reduce mortality from breast cancer. No other imaging technique has been shown to reduce risk. Mammography of older women is encouraged as a screening method to diagnose early breast cancer.
