Smile X-Ray Info

Hi everyone,

Wonderful to hear such positive amazing recoveries on here. Just some information that might be useful? Im not sure if it is common knowledge, but I was not aware of this till recently. In regards to x-rays...I've lost count how many we've had with Emily's 10 surgeries. At a guess more than 50 along with 3 MRIs and several fluoscopys. There's an x-ray machine called EOS that gives only 10 percent of radiation compared to a normal x-ray. Its only available in Sydney at 1 hospital (cant mention hospitals) but I spoke to the radiographer this morning, and there's another machine coming to Sydney and 2 coming to Melbourne. We are due for x-rays this month then again at the end of the year. 10 months post fusion and going fantastic! So for us it is worth the drive to Sydney from Newcastle. Just thought Ide share this information with you all. Best wishes.
