Vero Radiology Associates offers a full service x-ray department with a full array of X-ray and fluoroscopic exams.
Digital x-ray images are a quick and effective imaging tool utilized for illness or injury evaluation. With no prep and no appointment necessary patients with a physicians order can obtain these x-rays at their convenience.
Fluoroscopy exams such as Barium Enema, Barium Enema with Air, Esophogram, Small Bowel and Gastrointestinal Series are a specialized imaging process that allows the radiologist to view patient's organs in motion. The ability to watch barium as it passes through a patient's body provides essential information for evaluating and diagnosing digestive function and problems.
Some of these studies require the use of contrast agents and usually take approximately 30-40 minutes.
The exam is a specialized x-ray that demonstrates the function of the kidneys, ureters and the bladder. A contrast agent is injected allowing the radiologist to observe these structures. A prep is required for this exam.
This exam allows the radiologist to image the uterus and the fallopian tubes. A contrast agent is introduced through a small catheter allowing the radiologist to visualize the uterus and the fallopian tubes often to check for patency of the tubes.
After an injection of contrast, the radiologist uses fluoroscopy to evaluate the joint. This allows the radiologist to see the soft tissue structures of the joint, such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, cartilage and the joint capsule. Occasionally an MRI or CT Scan will follow after the injection in x-ray.
An imaging exam that involves the introduction of a spinal needle into the spinal canal and the injection of contrast material in the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots using fluoroscopy. Myelography provides the radiologist with a detailed picture of the spinal cord and spinal column.
A nurse will contact you prior to the exam to review your history and give you specific instructions.
