Why X-Ray Imaging is Crucial for Chiropractors

It's crucial for chiropractors to utilize the suite of tools available to them to provide their patients with the best treatment. Chiropractors are trained in radiology and radiography as part of their education and radiographic imaging (x-ray) is an essential part of diagnosis and treatment of spine and postural issues. X-ray can be used by chiropractors either in a chiropractic office or through referral and helps eliminate guesswork by allowing chiropractors to understand the true alignment of the spine and plan treatment accordingly.

Benefits of x-ray for chiropractors

A range of different pains, functional impairments and muscle weaknesses can be alleviated with chiropractic realignment of the spine. These impairments may be due to stresses and strains on the various components of the spine including bones, muscles, ligaments, and discs.

Contemporary chiropractic approaches to spinal rehabilitation that use x-ray imaging have demonstrated superiority over other treatments. Alternate diagnostic methods are often indirect and don’t reveal the true source of the patient’s pain or discomfort. This could result in misdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment and a detrimental outcome for the patient.

Radiography reveals the true condition of the spine and has the ability to show chiropractors exactly what is happening inside the body in terms of skeletal structure and alignment. This remarkable imaging technique provides guidance to the chiropractor for how to manually manipulate the skeletal components. Not only does x-ray provide detailed images of the skeletal system, it can also show the presence of scar tissue or arthritis. Both of these conditions require consideration when developing a treatment plan.

Chiropractic uses of x-ray

Chiropractors can use x-ray for a range of purposes including:

3 Points to consider with Chiropractic Digital X-ray Viewing Software

Once you have taken the x-ray, the next question is how you will view them. Most chiropractic offices will have a designated Report of Findings (ROF) room, where they will have a dedicated computer and monitor to show the images to their patients. The monitor can be a traditional computer monitor, or some of our customers will use a TV connected to a computer to display the images in large format. In order to view images in multiple rooms, you want to ensure that the system that you purchase will have either a cloud or web-based viewer or a desktop application viewer that can be installed in other rooms to be able to view the images in multiple rooms, as some packages do not include this.

A viewer is just one part of the puzzle. We discussed previously that a PACS system is what you will need to store the images. In most cases, it is this PACS system that is used as the central database for your viewer in other rooms to access and view those images. We are going to now discuss some of the key elements in how to view digital x-rays:
