Radiography uses ionizing radiation (x-rays) to image any part of the human anatomy from head to toe. This technique is well-suited to the skeleton.

Facilities, Technical Capabilities, and Limitations

  • There are five radiography (x-ray) units available for human research. 
  • All units produce high-quality digital images.
  • Images are viewable and archived on the Enterprise-wide McKesson PACS; CDs/DVDs can be created as needed.
  • Radiology reports are viewable through SCM/AEHR and can be printed as needed.
