Did you know that radiation in podiatry x-rays is .001 msv per dose, compared to a standard x-ray dose of .1 msv? If you didn’t, no worries! Our Medical Assistants at Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa sure do! Through the Iowa Department of Public Health, Bureau of Radiological Health our Medical Assistants undergo online training, and they also receive on-site experience with our podiatrist reflecting the differences of podiatric x-ray equipment. Their instruction largely covers radiation safety, equipment operation, patient care, and anatomy. Having our x-ray operators certified keeps the information in-house and gives our foot and ankle specialists immediate access to patients’ images. This allows your podiatrist to outline specific deformities and treatment options quickly, to get patients on the road to recovery as soon as possible. X-rays are important for new patients, all the way through post-operative care. Having in house x-rays makes your visit more efficient and convenient for you, as the x-ray suite is just steps away from your exam room so no lengthy waits in a different facility or having to coordinate having your x-rays taken elsewhere prior to your visit. Just know here are the Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa we will always help you put your best foot forward. 😊
