WHAT IS DMX?
Dynamic Motion X-ray (DMX) is a new application of an imaging system known as fluoroscopy. Advances in technology have made it possible to produce crystal clear motion images with less radiation than traditional x-rays. These advances enable medical providers to view injuries while a patient is performing the activities that cause the painful conditions. DMX visualizes and records the injury in motion, along with a conventional video (allowing for simultaneous internal and external views of the patient) in real time. This can provide conclusive, clinically objective findings proving the extent, location, and nature of injuries that were previously unable to be observed. As a result a patient’s condition can be more effectively diagnosed, and a treatment plan can be more specifically targeted to the injury. Insurance companies are more likely to reimburse medical charges and patient care with DMX’s irrefutable objective documentation of an injury or abnormality.
The DMX system is also used as a visualization tool for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The imaging DMX provides can facilitate and documents the correct placement of a needle or catheter used in procedures.
Our DMX Department’s goal is to provide our referring providers and patients with the highest possible quality of dynamic diagnostic imaging. We can provide referring providers and patients with the imaging information needed to get the appropriate medical treatment for the patient’s particular injury or abnormality. With the correct documentation and diagnosis, medical providers will be able to manage and control their patient’s pain more effectively.
