The dynamic images that radiology provides are essential to both physicians and patients, thanks to their realistic depiction of the anatomy, functions and abnormalities within the body. Radiologists can interpret imaging studies, act as consultants to other specialists and perform interventional procedures. There are several categories of radiological procedures offered at Cornerstone Regional Hospital.
An X-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body to sensors on the other side. The sensors then use the data they receive to create a digital image. The ability of X-rays to penetrate tissues and bones depends on the tissue’s composition and mass. The difference between these two elements creates the images. Chest X-rays are the most common radiologic examination.
