The iDR-34 Dual Capture Eliminates Need for Several X-rays


While there are no pharmaceutical medications or invasive surgical procedures involved in chiropractic care, this does not mean that the use of technology isn't heavily incorporated. An area of chiropractic care that is based in technology is diagnostics.

Chiropractors use technology that is often involved with radiology as a way to look inside the body and try to point out problems in the musculoskeletal system’s alignment. When chiropractors use radiology to diagnose a problem, they are given a better idea of what is occurring in the body to cause the symptoms that the patient is experiencing and what he or she can do to fix it.

One of the most common forms of radiology used in not only chiropractic care but in the overall medical community is the X-ray. In using X-ray machines, chiropractors are given an image of the bones to identify what the skeletal components look like, how they are arranged, and if there are any adjustments that can be made.

Recently, the release of a certain X-ray machine is changing the way that we view radiology in diagnostics. The iDR-34 Dual Zone Capture is taking the market for radiology equipment by storm with its innovative design and unprecedented capabilities. While other X-ray machines are able to capture images of the body with multiple exposures to different areas, the iDR-34 Dual Zone Capture features full-length spinal images with just two exposures to X-rays. Many patients are afraid of the effects of excessive exposure to X-rays and are pensive when they find out that they are required to get multiple X-rays. The iDR-34 Dual Zone Capture eliminates this fear.

The iDR-34 Dual Zone Capture uses cutting edge ICE-3 enhancement processing to provide chiropractors with high definition images of the bones being scanned as well as the soft tissue surrounding the bones. These high definition images are in 16-bit resolution with the use of 65,000 different shades of grey that combine to form the images. This achieved through the use of a lot of energy but a low dose of exposure to X-rays and ultimately, a balance is achieved between the bone and the tissues.

The iDR-34 Dual Zone Capture is being rolled out in chiropractic clinics across the country and soon, the ability for chiropractors to see inside the body and gain full insight into what is actually occurring in the musculoskeletal system will be heightened significantly.
