Radiology, a first level diagnostic investigation

Radiology is the branch of medicine that deals with producing and interpreting radiological images for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

At Quisisana, an accredited private hospital, it is possible to undergo x-rays in Ferrara. The specialist doctor, once in possession of the X-ray, will be able to confirm/make his diagnosis to outline the exact therapeutic path.

What is an x-ray?

At Quisisana it is possible to undergo payable x-rays, not affiliated with the National Health System.

Radiography allows studying a segment or a skeletal district (hand, wrist, elbow, chest, abdomen, etc.) by X-rays. The radiation produced by the machinery passes through the patient's body and reproduces the image of the segment/sector studied on a photosensitive system. Then the image is processed, reported and delivered to the patient.

X-rays are typically ordered following trauma, or to assess the severity of osteoarthritis and arthritis, or to diagnose/monitor bone lesions or metastases. They do not require special preparation: you just need to take care to remove metal objects, jewelry and costume jewelry before carrying out the exam.

How the orthopantomography is carried out and what is it for

In addition to traditional radiology services without intravenous contrast, at Quisisana it is possible to undergo an orthopantomography in Ferrara.

More commonly known as panoramic x-ray of the dental arches, it is a particular radiography that allows you to view and study dental arches, teeth, maxilla and mandible. Typically prescribed by the dentist (but also by the surgeon, otolaryngologist or oncologist), it does not require preparation. The patient must remain motionless, with the head inside the device and with the incisors tightened on a fixing point, for 10-15 seconds.
