C-Arm is a medical imaging device that is based on X-Ray technology. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-Ray source and X-Ray detector to one another. It is often used in surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery and cardiology for intra-operative imaging. The device provides high-resolution X-Ray images in real time, allowing the surgeon to monitor progress at any point during the surgery.
I want an X-Ray but do not have a doctor’s order. Can I still have the X-ray done at La Loma Luz Adventist Hospital?
Short answer: Yes. We recommend that you be evaluated first by a doctor so as to avoid unnecessary radiation while doing an unnecessary X-Ray. Also please bear in mind that our Radiology technicians, even though experienced, do not provide an interpretation of the images. If you need a written report of the X-rays, it can be provided by the radiologist but this will incur additional costs.
