What Is DMX Technology?
DMX is Digital Motion X-ray technology.
In DMX studies, X-rays are taken at a rate of 30 frames per second which in turn create a digital real-time live motion study of the filmed body area which is available for immediate review.
Although some people experience pain while in a still position, many people experience pain or discomfort with a certain motion. Unlike a traditional X-ray unit, or even an MRI, which both require the patient to be motionless during the study; DMX studies allow for real-time movement where the patient can re-create the movement that is causing pain or discomfort, while simultaneously allowing the doctor to evaluate ligament and joint stability as well as bone structures to see what is happening on the inside at the same time.
DMX studies are not only used to evaluate Spinal structures, but they are also phenomenal at evaluating the integrity of Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Hands, Hips, Knees, Ankles and Feet in live real-time motion.
MRI's show ligament damage and bone structures, but DMX studies show how that ligament damage (bone fractures also) affect the body's functionality in real-time activity.
DMX studies are an amazing diagnostic tool for doctors and a nightmare for opposing insurance companies and attorney's in auto accident, worker's compensation, or slip & fall injury cases.
Atlanta Spine Doctor's is proud to currently have one of the few if not the only DMX unit in the Metro Atlanta area!
