X-Ray Services in Charleston, WV
Most people know that digital X-rays can help doctors get a better look at broken bones and dislocated joints, but people may not think about the other things that X-rays can be used to diagnose, including:
- Abdominal pain
- Signs of pneumonia
- Signs of tuberculosis
- Swallowed objects
- Tooth decay
Our X-ray experts can examine for any problem as recommended by your doctor to check your health.
Sometimes your doctor may want you to have a special type of X-ray reading called a B-reader X-ray. This reading is done by doctors specially certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. These doctors are able to examine the X-rays for certain problems.
These readings can identify abnormalities caused by the inhalation of certain dusts and particles in the air, including:
- Coal dust
These B-reader X-rays can be particularly helpful for people in West Virginia who may work in the coal industry or in construction where people may come in contact with harmful airborne particles. B-reader X-rays can help doctors identify problems with black lung or other breathing difficult that can be caused by particles in the air.
If you want to be sure that your lungs are healthy, we can provide B-reader X-rays for you.
