Brighton Radiology's state-of-the-art Long View X-Ray machine has distinct advantages for both the operator and the patient.
- Using Slot radiography technology, the whole spine and legs can be imaged as a single block. Images can be acquired with the table in any position from supine to standing — making weight bearing procedures easy. This is invaluable, for example, for accurate orthopaedic line/angle measurement of conditions such as scoliosis, limb length, coxa/genu valgus/varus.
- In addition, the slot technique produces low dose images with minimal geometric distortion and accurate measurements.
- Imaging can be performed recumbent, or standing to evaluate weight-bearing effects.
Bookings can be made by calling Brighton Radiology directly on 9592 3319 or by going to our appointments page and submitting an appointment request form.
