X-ray

In some situations, X-ray imaging is essential. It can help to identify serious problems. Our X-ray lab is particularly useful for:

  • Bone injury and bone health

  • Chest disease and pneumonia

  • Disgetive problems and swallowed objects

  • Enlarged heart

 

We operate the X-ray equipment under strict control from the health authorities to ensure that all radiation exposures are kept to the absolute minimum. Doctors at FirstMed only perform X-rays when medically indicated.

Ultrasound

Using our ultrasound machine, our doctors can generate high-resolution images of different bodily regions such as the thyroid, breast, abdomen and pelvis as well as dynamic studies to check for problems with blood flow in arteries and veins.

As most people are aware, ultrasound is a very safe technology without the risks of radiation exposure that other imaging modalities carry. With this in mind, we try to make full use of this excellent technology to enhance patient care.
