The foundation of an accurate analysis and corrective care plan is based on a history, comprehensive examination and appropriate diagnostic radiographs. Of the three, obtaining diagnostic radiographs in the pediatric patient is the most difficult to accomplish due to patient movement. The movement creates a blurring of the x-ray image making it non-diagnostic.
Digital Motion X-ray is the solution for the pediatric practice due to the patient's ability to move while the
x-ray’s are taken. Crystal clear diagnostic imaging can be obtained even if the patient moves with this technology.
DMX exams utilize extremely low dose radiation and should not be a primary consideration.
