Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) at our Tampa area clinic is cutting-edge technology that can detect and diagnose soft tissue injuries that could never be seen before! MRI, CT, and standard x-ray tests commonly miss injuries because the patient is not in motion. Instead, the patient is asked to stand still or lay still and to hold his or her breath. The Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) test at our Tampa area clinic finds injuries that are evident only when you move. If your pain increases with movement, common sense tells you that your injuries should be examined "in motion" with the advanced technology of Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX)!
Whether you are a patient who is in pain, a doctor who cannot diagnose the source of your patient’s pain, or an attorney who needs to prove your client’s injury, Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) could be the answer for you. Contact Nu-Best® Whiplash Injury Center, Inc. today to schedule a Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) diagnostic test at our Tampa clinic.
Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) vs. Standard X-Ray Tests
There are several major differences between Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) and standard x-ray tests, such as MRI or CT scans. They include:
- Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) produces crystal clear, full-motion x-ray video images. Standard x-rays produce a static image on film that is often too blurry to detect any injury.
- Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) video images show black bones on a white background. Standard x-rays show white bones on a black background, making it difficult to see damage.
- Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) produces 30 images per second; standard x-rays produce 15 images per second. In fact, you would have to be exposed to more than 3,200 x-rays to generate what the Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) machine sees!
- Standard x-rays don’t always detect soft tissue injury and ligament damage. Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) can diagnose these injuries in as little as 15 minutes.
- During standard x-ray tests, patients are told to stay still and hold their breath while the images are taken. During a Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX), patients demonstrate which movements cause them pain. People get hurt in motion, so doesn’t it make more sense to evaluate them in motion?
If you have had negative MRIs and x-rays in the past and are still in pain, contact Nu-Best Whiplash Injury Center, Inc. to schedule a Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) test at our Tampa area clinic.
Video Fluoroscopy, Digital X-Rays, X-Ray Video
Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) utilizes video fluoroscopy and x-ray video technology to take full motion digital x-rays of any body joint in motion. Video fluoroscopy is used to analyze bones and joints, while the digital x-rays allow you and the doctor to view your results while they are being taken.
Video fluoroscopy technology, available at our Tampa facility, allows doctors to evaluate body joints in motion and record the results on videotape. Video fluoroscopy eliminates the need for repeat studies, which reduces radiation exposure and allows for a quick diagnosis. In addition, video fluoroscopy produces x-ray video images that have better resolution, frame-by-frame stop motion, and real-time audio recording. Video fluoroscopy combines traditional fluoroscopy with x-ray video technology to track and analyze the motion of joints. Video fluoroscopy can reveal soft tissue injury and ligament damage that standard radiology tests, such as MRI or CT scans, often can’t detect.
Video fluoroscopy is one of the most reliable sources of evidence for soft tissue injury and ligamentous damage because of its ability to capture and record these real-time x-ray video images. Unlike standard x-ray tests, video fluoroscopy provides a moving image in real time. With one simple push of a button, your x-ray video images come to life so both you and your doctor can see the injury and decide the best course of treatment.
Digital x-rays at our Tampa area facility help you get the diagnosis and treatment you need without needless radiation. Digital x-rays allow you and your doctor to view x-ray video images on a monitor while they are being taken, as opposed to traditional x-rays that show static images on film. This can dramatically accelerate the diagnosis process because you do not have to wait for x-ray film to develop. In addition, digital x-rays can be electronically stored and transmitted by computer, so they can be sent out to other locations in a matter of seconds. Digital x-rays can also be enlarged for improved evaluation, and the brightness or contrast of the x-ray video can be altered until the doctor can clearly and accurately see the source of injury. This reduces exam times by eliminating the need to retake low quality x-ray images.

Dynamic Video Overlay and Picture in Picture (PIP) Technology
Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) utilizes dynamic video overlay (DVO) and Picture in Picture (PIP) technology to provide verifiable evidence of connective and soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash and ligament damage. With DVO, the radiologist’s report is overlaid on top of the digital x-rays, making the injuries evident to anyone who needs to prove the damage, including attorneys and insurance companies. PIP displays the patient’s picture on the digital x-rays, leaving no doubt that the images belong to them.
Are you suffering from pain that your doctor cannot diagnose? Are you a doctor who needs to diagnose your patient’s pain? Are you an attorney who needs to prove the source of your client’s pain? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a Digital Motion X-Ray® (DMX) test at our Tampa clinic may be right for you.
