Radio Diagnostics

Even today, X-rays are still important to assess the fine bone structure as a supplement to other diagnostic methods. X-rays are also a useful addition to magnetic resonance imaging for specific questions, such as whether there is a calcium deposit in the shoulder joint.

Of course, radiation exposure can be minimized by various measures and is normally relatively low with these images.‚Ä®
