Faster Detection of Lung Diseases Now Being Offered at CDI Miami

May 5, 2014



MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) May 05, 2014

X-rays use invisible electromagnetic beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs. X-rays are made by using external radiation to produce images of the body, its organs, and other internal structures for diagnostic purposes. X-rays pass through body tissues onto specially treated plates; a "negative" type picture is made. X-rays are often created digitally for analysis on computers. With digital medical imaging advancements, chest X-rays are now being offered at the Center for Diagnostic Imaging. The Center for Diagnostic Imaging today announced X-rays specifically for chest scanning to detect lung diseases.

Chest X-rays are routinely taken from the back to front. Usually a view from the side is taken also. Chest X-rays provide a good outline of the heart and major blood vessels and usually can reveal a serious disorder in the lungs or the chest wall, including the ribs. These X-rays can clearly show most pneumonia, lung tumors, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a collapsed lung, and air or fluid in the pleural space. Although chest X-rays seldom give enough information to determine the exact cause of any abnormalities, they can help determine whether other tests are needed.

Other related procedures that may be used to diagnose problems of the chest and respiratory tract include chest ultrasound, computed tomography (CT scan) of the chest, lung biopsy, lung scans, positron emission tomography (PET scan) of the chest, etc. These scans are all offered at the Center for Diagnostic Imaging in Miami.
