Digital x-rays have done so much for foot care over the past ten years. They allow Podiatrist Dr. Vargas to take an image of your foot and magnify it so he can see it in great detail. They also allow him to calculate angles and bone positions that are vital when planning for surgery. This tells him quickly whether you might have a stress fracture or some other kind of foot problem that requires a different solution.
Digital x-rays are a new way to take very detailed images of your feet and body using a computer. Digital x-rays have made diagnosing foot problems much easier and safer than it used to be.
Also, the little bit of radiation from a digital x-ray leaves the body right away. As soon as Podiatrist Dr. Vargas turns off the beam that takes the picture of the bones, you or your loved one has no more exposure and no lasting effects.
If you or your loved one has chronic foot conditions, Dr. Vargas can use digital x-rays to monitor you on an ongoing basis so he can evaluate and treat the problem. Sometimes Dr. Vargas uses digital x-rays to expertly guide him during surgery. He can also share results with other doctors if you ask him to.
Every day, you and your loved one get exposed to radiation that occurs naturally. Digital x-rays produce much less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine does. Podiatrist Dr. Vargas takes the safety of you and your family very seriously. When he takes a digital x-ray of a foot or ankle, the patient will only get exposed to the same amount of radiation that anybody would get working or playing outside for three hours on a normal day!
Sugar Land, TX, Podiatrist Dr. Vargas can see what exact foot problems you have quickly and can tell you the results of a digital x- ray in real time. You will not need to wait around or come back to the office to hear the results, so you will have more time in your day to take care of other important things!
