Digital Motion X-ray
A digital motion X-ray (DMX) is the only medical imaging modality that visualizes the human body while in motion and WNY Imaging Group is one of the few outpatient facilities that offers this procedure. This image-intensified fluoroscopic x-ray system allows the radiologist to view the cervical spine in motion, and in real-time. As you move, so does the image.
Digital motion X-ray is helpful in diagnosing injuries such as whiplash or ligamentous instability of the neck after motor vehicle accidents. The procedure requires you to stand and actively move your neck and head in nodding and tipping motions. The radiologist is then able to see your head and neck anatomy move instantly. This leads to very clear and accurate images.
