How Much Is An X-ray Photo Lab Check?
I want to ask yesterday, my friend fell from the motor and his head hit the asphalt and a bump, but the leak did not leak and the lower back section also hurt inside.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a person who experiences a head impact during an accident, especially if the impact is hard enough (even if it does not leak or bleed outside) must undergo a CT scan because an x-ray alone will not be able to detect any bleeding inside the head (brain hemorrhage). X-ray of the head can only detect if there are cracks in the skull, and even then not as good as a CT scan of the head. If indeed your friend's impact is hard enough, your friend experiences symptoms such as severe headaches, vomiting, loss of consciousness, or other neurological symptoms, then your friend should get a CT scan immediately to see if there is bleeding in his head. Bleeding in the head can be dangerous if left unchecked and even has the potential to cause death if the bleeding is very large.
Regarding injuries to the back, X-ray examination can indeed be done, but if there are neurological symptoms as well (for example there is tingling or numbness in the legs, paralysis in the legs, can not hold bowel movements or urinating, etc.), then your friend may also need an examination continued with MRI. X-ray examination can only see whether there is injury to the spine, but MRI can see the structure of the surrounding soft tissue (for example if there is bleeding that compresses the spinal cord).
The cost of a radiological examination at each health center can vary, so it is a good idea to call directly to the administrative center of the health center you wish to visit. In order not to waste money on improper examinations, it is better if your friend is taken to the doctor first so that the examination can be more targeted.
The following is a link that can help you search for a hospital and estimate the costs of certain medications, measures, or examinations.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
