In today’s medical environment, diagnostic X-Ray is a crucial method with the help of which patients can be treated properly. In case of emergencies, doctors always advise patients to have a diagnostic x-Ray done in order to see the actual conditions of the internal organs. Most of the southern radiology clinics are located close to the hospitals so that patients can come up to them for any kind of test and at any time in case of emergency.
Some of the hospitals have their own emergency X-Ray radiology wards where the radiologists perform the tests and generate images of the human body which help doctors to treat patients fast and accurately. Some of the digital imaging techniques provide very quick images with a higher resolution so that the images are clearer. With the help of another diagnostic imaging technique, known as fluoroscopy, doctors can inject patients in the right vein and can also see as to what amount of medicine is being injected. As a result, the percentage of human errors committed is reduced. With the help of fluoroscopy, fractures can viewed perfectly and thus help doctors during operation.
CT Angiogram is a better technique of digital imaging. It does not require X-Ray or any magnetic field. So it can be termed as safe. CT Angiogram uses a contrasting agent which is injected in the patient’s body either orally or by injecting via the rectum. Mostly, patients feel uneasy with the contrasting agents as they have to drink it. But these agents are not harmful. At first, patients may have a vomiting tendency, but later it passes away.
CT Angiogram is performed on different parts of the body. Heart is one of the most vital organs of the human body. Today many people experience blockage in heart and other complications as well. With the help of CT Angiogram, doctors can treat patients accurately and perform operations depending on the complications. Angioplasty can be done if the patient has blockage in the narrow coronary arteries. If the patient has further complications and they are critical, then bypass surgery is a better option.
With the advent of cloud computing, e-labs and e-diagnostics have come up which can help patients take diagnostic x-ray and other tests online, thus reducing the cost. In these tests, light weight and simplified instruments are used so that it becomes easy for radiologists to maintain these equipments. The equipments are portable and can be accessed from anywhere in the world at any time. Some of the southern radiology clinics have these online techniques to make patients more convenient. These techniques are also user friendly. But these online services must be protected with the highest security solutions as hackers might tamper with the records of the patients. Doctors observe the X-Ray Radiology and CT Angiogram reports closely and make changes in them so as to help them treat the patients. In most of the emergency cases, doctors might need to refer to the reports multiple times. So it should be entirely the responsibility of a radiologist to store the data properly and securely.
