X-Ray and Fluoroscopy
Norwalk Radiology & Mammography Center, the largest and one of the most advanced imaging centers in the region, offers the full array of conventional X-Ray procedures, as well as special exams such as studies of the GI tract, kidneys, and joints.
Board-certified radiologists, who have fulfilled the strict credentialing and continuing education requirements of the American College of Radiology, are always on-site, directing and monitoring exams.
The results of all exams are available and sent to your doctor usually within hours of the exam completion. Urgent and emergency results are communicated immediately.
To learn even more about a your X-ray examination visit:
X-rays are a form of electro-magnetic energy, like light or radio waves. They are just of a different frequency. X-rays can allow a certified technologist to produce ‘pictures’ of internal structures. The radiologist can then view these on a special high-resolution (HD) computer. X-rays provide valuable information about managing your health and making correct diagnosis.
Almost all activities carry some kind of risk. From driving a car, to crossing a street or simply going for a walk in your neighborhood. To call something ‘safe’ usually means that it carries a low risk, but not zero risk. Zero risk is essentially impossible.
Radiation naturally exists everywhere in the environment. These levels of radiation are clearly safe. If they were not, life on Earth would not exist.
People living in high altitudes regions like Colorado or New Mexico receive more radiation per year than those living near sea level.
The largest source of background radiation comes from radon gas in our homes
The added radiation dose from being a frequent flyer, pilot or stewardess is more than a standard X-ray.
After 100 years of research, it has been impossible to prove that low-dose x-rays, like those used in radiology, causes cancer.
