X-ray imaging is one of the fastest and easiest ways for a physician to view the internal organs and structures of the body. It has been available for 100 years and is an excellent tool for assessing skeletal trauma (e.g. broken bones), for diagnosing the gastro-intestinal system (digestive tract) and for comprehensive imaging of the thoracic cavity including the lungs and heart. Conventional X-ray imaging encompasses a wide range of techniques and applications.
Southern Health-Santé Sud provides general X-ray imaging at 13 facilities. Additionally, five facilities provide fluoroscopy services.
