Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Radiography

Diagnostic/Routine Radiography

An X-ray is a form of radiation, like light or radio waves, which can be focused into a beam. When X-rays strike a piece of photographic film or a screen, an image is produced. Dense tissues in the body, such as bones, block (absorb) many of the X-rays and appear white on an X-ray image. Less dense tissues, such as muscles and organs, appear in shades of gray, while X-rays that pass only through air, such as X-rays of the lungs or colon, appear black.

Fluoroscopic Radiography

Fluoroscopy uses a continuous x-ray beam to create a sequence of images that are projected onto a fluorescent screen or monitor. When used with a contrast material, which helps define the area being examined, this special x-ray technique makes it possible for the physician to view internal organs in motion.
