Have you ever thought about the technology that diagnostic imaging centers use? You will when your doctor orders an imaging exam for you. That’s when you will think about the importance of using the most up-to-date equipment.
Why does it matter? It matters because innovative equipment produces the highest image quality for more accurate diagnoses and better outcomes. Better image quality is critical to your health. That’s why Medicaid Radio-diagnostic insists on using the most technologically advanced equipment and software.
Another consideration is radiation exposure. Some patients are concerned about the risks related to radiation from medical imaging such as CT scans or X-rays. You should know that the radiation dose from any single imaging test is extremely low and comes with almost no risk. Patients at greater risk are those who have multiple imaging studies performed within a short period of time.
