DIGITAL MOTION X-RAY
Digital motion x-ray, or DMX, is a specific type of real-time x-ray (fluoroscopy) that views the bones in motion to detect abnormal motion, hypomobility, or hypermobility (instability) in the spine.
DMXis often used as a screening tool to see if further tests, such as MRIs, CT, or if surgical intervention is warranted.
THE 2020 PEER-REVIEWED
STUDY ON DMX
This study published in March 2020 in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, reviewed the validity of DMX (fluoroscopy) in discriminating between injured and uninjured subjects.
The findings of two or more abnormal parameters of intervertebral motion during a DMX of the spine is a highly accurate diagnostic test for identifying patients with chronic (>6-weeks) neck pain after a whiplash trauma.
Two or more abnormal findings on the DMX there is an 88 percent chance of the patient being injured.
When there are 4 or more abnormal findings the probability of the patient being injured was 100 percent. (A DMX cervical exam evaluates 22-ligaments).
