What is an Pelvis X-ray?
An x-ray pelvis is a specialized x-ray which evaluates the bones of the pelvis. It is used to diagnose a wide range of conditions, including bone fractures and arthritis. Additionally, x-ray pelvis examinations are often employed in order to check for abnormalities or signs of infection or tumor growth. These x-rays are essential part of diagnosing and treatment planning of pelvic related injuries and diseases, as they help in depicting detailed anatomy that can't be seen with the naked eye. Therefore, x-rays play an important role not just in diagnosis but also therapies such as fracture fixation and joint replacement surgery.
When is a Pelvis X-ray prescribed?
A Pelvis x-ray is often prescribed by a medical professional when an individual is experiencing pain, swelling or discomfort in their pelvic area. It is typically used to diagnose fractured bones, displaced fractures, arthritis and sources of infection. It’s also helpful for determining changes in bone structures due to disease or ageing and can assist in identifying the presence of foreign bodies such as gunshot wounds. In some cases, x-rays may be performed prior to a surgery in order to produce images that provide the surgeon with guidance. Because x-rays have become a commonplace diagnostic tool and are so easily accessible, they are generally regarded as one of the quickest and least expensive ways to diagnose issues related to the pelvis.
