Casts and splints support and protect injured bones and soft tissue and may be applied by a Registered Orthopedic Technologist or a medical provider. When you break a bone, your doctor will put the pieces back together in the right position. Casts and splints hold the bones in place while they heal. They also reduce pain, swelling, and muscle spasm. In some cases, splints and casts are applied following surgery.

X-ray (Radiography) - Bone

Diagnostic imaging techniques help narrow the causes of an injury or illness and ensure that the diagnosis is accurate. These imaging tools let your doctor "see" inside your body to get a "picture" of your bones, organs, muscles, tendons, nerves, and cartilage. This is a way the doctor can determine if there are any abnormalities. X-rays radiographs are the most common and widely available diagnostic imaging technique.
Bone x-ray uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of any bone in the body. It is commonly used to diagnose fractured bones or joint dislocation. Bone x-rays are the fastest and easiest way for your doctor to view and assess bone fractures, injuries and joint abnormalities.
