Digital Radiography (DR or DX) is filmless x-ray images. In place of x-ray films, a device captures the image digitally and records the x-ray image as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as a part of the patient’s medical record. Digital Radiography is time efficient as it captures immediate x-ray image for preview and is readily available for providers. It has a wider dynamic range which is more accurate to prevent over- and under-exposure to patients and has the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhances overall display of the image as compared to conventional radiography.
PACS stands for Picture Archiving and Communication System which replaces x-ray films with digital images. Films can only be available in one place at a time and frequently result in delayed patient care if it is not immediately available to the physicians. With PACS, patient studies can be viewed from any computer at our facilities or from referring physicians and radiologists who have Digital Radiography. It also links the reports for imaging studies, which makes it easy to view images and the associated reports at the same time.

An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contration. Nerve conduction velocity(NCV) measures how well and fast the nerves can send electrical signals. Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals(impulses), and these impulses make the muscles react in specific ways. Nerve and muscle disorders causes the muscles to react in abnormal ways. Measuring the electrical activity in muscles and nerves can help find diseases that damage muscle tissue, such as muscular atrophy, or nerves, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or peripheral neuropathies. EMG and NCV are often done together to give a complete and accurate information.
