Do hospitals generally use U-arm X-ray machines for orthopedic examinations? I believe many people have such questions. Because basically every hospital with a certain scale has a 500ma machine. However, a 500ma X-ray machine is not necessarily used for orthopedic examinations.
Because the size of the X-ray machine depends on the location of the shot. The principle of the X-ray machine is that X-rays have different penetrating capabilities to materials of different densities. The greater the density, the weaker the penetrating ability. The density of different components such as human bones, fat, and soft tissues are different, and the penetration capabilities of radiation for these components are different. Among them, bones are the most difficult to penetrate. But small bones, such as hands and feet, can be penetrated with a small dose. At this time, you can see clearly with a 100ma or even a 50ma machine. However, people’s lumbar spine, pelvis and other parts require larger doses, because small doses cause unclear imaging, which will affect diagnosis and treatment. At this time, a U-arm X-ray machine is necessary.
After reading the above introduction, you should have a general understanding of the U-arm X-ray machine, right? Want to know more, please call to contact us.
