JOSHUA T ACOSTA - X-Ray in GRANDVIEW, MO

 
An X ray is a form of electromagnetic energy that cannot be seen. The X rays can penetrate many substances to varying degrees. Dr. JOSHUA ACOSTA will focus the X rays at a specific location to identify problem areas. The difference in penetration can be exposed on a photographic plate. Thicker areas, such as bone, prevent the X rays from penetrating through to the photographic plate -- this enable Dr. JOSHUA ACOSTA to see subtle difference in alignment of your bones.
Dr. JOSHUA ACOSTA uses X ray tests in Missouri to help diagnose deformities and malposition of the bones. X ray examinations are particularly good at helping Doctor JOSHUA ACOSTA identify malposition of the vertebra of the spine.
X rays are not useful for visualizing the details of soft tissue. Dr. JOSHUA ACOSTA will recommend other imaging technologies, such magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), or ultrasound to evaluate the ligaments, muscles and organs.
Dr. JOSHUA ACOSTA takes care to limit the total number of X ray examinations you receive in Missouri, as too much radiation from X rays can be bad for you.
