Dr. Shandon Thompson, the director of DMX Imaging in Ashburn, Virginia uses Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) technology to identify hidden car accident whiplash.
DMX Imaging, a premier healthcare company in Northern Virginia is the first x-ray clinic that offers the latest in break-through diagnostic imaging technology i.e. the Digital Motion X-ray. DMX is a new type of fluoro-based X-ray system, coupled with new digital and optic technology, allowing clinicians to view the spine in real-time motion at 30 x-rays per second. And also, it can produce 2,700 X-ray images with the same amount of radiation as a standard x-ray machine, which gives you 6 static X-rays.
According to Dr. Shandon Thompson, "X-rays are taken with the patient standing in a weight bearing position and actively moving in a way that reproduces their pain. It objectively illustrates how the car accident whiplash occurred, what structures are involved and the precise location and severity of the injury. This information can be very useful for doctors and attorneys who're struggling to get the necessary compensation for the victims".
The main difference between DMX and other technologies is the motion advantage. While the patient is moving the damaged part of their body, Digital Motion X-ray takes a fast sequence of x-rays. For example, personal injury victims with undetected whiplash slowly move their head according to the instructions to simulate the injury action that happened at the moment of impact. Dr. Thompson added, "The video study takes about 15 minutes and then copied on a DVD for immediate observing. Within one week, our board certified medical radiologist provides a written report on the study. Both DVD and written report can be provided to your doctor, insurance company and lawyer if needed."
After a proper diagnosis, doctors combine manipulation and realignment with physical therapy and massage therapy to help patients recover from the discomfort and pain associated with personal injury.
