Radiography (X-ray)

X-ray examinations (radiographs) have been widely used and trusted for years and remain at the center of diagnostic imaging. At Eastern Radiologists, our skilled professionals use the latest in digital radiography. This technology provides the reliability and clarity needed to see inside your body and quickly determine your condition.

A cornerstone in imaging.

Even with all the advanced exams that Eastern Radiologists offers, radiography, or X-ray, remains an integral part of medical imaging and a tool we take seriously. Our radiography rooms use advanced digital technology rather than traditional film. This means your exam can quickly be reviewed for quality and sent to one of our board-certified radiologists for interpretation. The versatility of radiography allows for evaluation of virtually any body part and is frequently the first imaging study performed for a variety of conditions. In some cases, no further imaging is needed. But if additional evaluation is required, you can rest easy knowing that Eastern Radiologists has you covered, from the latest in imaging technology to the highly trained technologists and radiologists who will work with your doctor to determine next steps.
