Radiology

We have a radiology laboratory in the clinic, which allows us to obtain radiological results the same day, making our service fast and efficient.

Dr Cardoso and Dr Lapointe have a license in diagnostic radiology, they read and interpret themselves the films they take.

If indicated, the radiographs are read by an expert radiologist specialized in chiropractic (a DACBR doctor) licensed from the American Board of Chiropractic Radiologists.

Radiology is a medical specialty which uses imaging to diagnose and treat diseases observed in humans .

In plain film radiography, an X-ray tube generates an X-ray beam that is intended for the patient .

X-rays that pass through the patient are filtered through a device called a grid or X -ray filter.

 

Radiographs exist since the beginnings of Chiropractic in 1895.

 

Chiropractors use this tool to diagnose and analyze :

  • Spine alignment , cervical , thoracic and lumbar curves
  • The integrity or the wear of the intervertebral discs
  • Wear of the articular cartilage ( hips, knees, etc.)
  • The bone mineralization
  • Soft tissues (bursitis, abdomen, lungs, throat, etc.)
