Digital X-rays: Advanced Technology for Your Benefit

Since they were first used for medical diagnoses, the value of X-rays in pinpointing problems inside the human body has been proven again and again. They help doctors find and visualize fractures, tumors, and other problems so they can be treated. Even though the technology does come with a slight risk from exposure to the rays used to image the body, the value of diagnosing a problem before it worsens far outweighs the potential side effects. Now with advancements in technology, doctors are able to use digital pictures to accurately depict the body at an even lower risk.
Diagnosing Your Foot Pain with Digital X-Rays

Easy, Detailed Images

In the past, X-rays were shot directly onto large pieces of film that then took time to develop and be evaluated by the physicians. With digital technology, however, the image is instantaneous. Your foot or ankle is placed in front of sensors that read and capture the x-rays as they pass through you. The data is transferred to a computer where technicians can adjust the image for better quality, magnify the area that needs to be studied, or even decide if the image needs to be retaken.

For those who are concerned about the risks of radiation exposure, these digital pictures are actually better than traditional X-rays. The sensors that capture and transfer the data are more sensitive than regular film, and so do not require as much radiation for a clear photo. Even then, trained medical assistants are able to adjust the image on the computer to get greater clarity. The pictures that are taken are extremely detailed, so Dr. Joel W. Brook, Dr. David R. Northcutt, Dr. Irene Arroyo and Dr. John Baca are able to see more about your injury or other condition to diagnose it accurately. Also, because it happens so quickly, you have less time to wait to find out the results. Your injury or condition is able to be examined, diagnosed, and set on the path to treatment right away.

RATED BEST DALLAS PODIATRIST FOR YOUR FOOT & ANKLE CARE NEEDS
"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
