X-ray imaging helps health care providers pin point injury origin and establish treatment for patients. The radiology department performs various types of imaging such as radiography, computed tomography and ultrasound. After being examined by the radiologist, the imagery is used by health care providers to manage care for patients. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Justyn M. Freeman)
