  • WHY X-RAYS ARE IMPORTANT IN PODIATRY/CHIROPODY DISCUSSED BY TORONTO CHIROPODIST

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS BEEN OWNED AND OPERATED BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY SINCE 1980 AND HAD 2 X-RAY MACHINES ON SITE FOR OVER 30 YEARS.  X-RAYS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT DIAGNOSTIC ADJUNCT TO HELP A DOCTOR RULE OUT FRACTURES, TUMOURS, DEGENERATIVE CHANGES, SWELLING, ETC.  HAVING ACCESS TO THIS DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR ANY PRIMARY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL IN ORDER TO PRACTICE SAFE AND PROFESSIONAL CARE.  IN ONTARIO CHIROPODISTS ARE ALLOWED TO ORDER AND OWN AND OPERATE AN X-RAY MACHINE IF THEY HAVE 4 YEARS OF CHIROPODY SCHOOL AS PER THE HARP ACT (HEALING ARTS RADIATION PROTECTION ACT).  AS MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE HAD 4 YEARS UNDERGRADUATE TRAINING IN MICROBIOLOGY AND CHINESE MEDICINE AND ACUPUNCTURE, THEN THREE YEARS IN CHIROPODY AT THE MICHENER INSTITUTE AND THEN ANOTHER YEAR AT SUNDERLAND UNIVERSITY IN DURHAM, U.K. WHER SHE RECEIVED HER B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE. WHICH ENTITLES HER TO ORDER AS WELL AS OWN AND OPERATE AN X-RAY MACHINE.  MARZ WILL BE THE FIRST CHIROPODIST IN ONTARIO WHO WILL BE INSTALLING HER OWN X-RAY MACHINE.  WE HAVE PURCHASED THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN COMPUTERIZED DIGITAL X-RAY WITH CAESIUM SCREENS WHICH PROVIDE THE LOWEST RADIATION ON THE MARKET TODAY.  THIS WILL BE GREAT NEWS FOR ALL OF OUR PATIENTS.  CAN YOU IMAGINE MISSING A CANCEROUS TUMOUR BECAUSE YOU WERE DENIED ACCESS TO X-RAYS RADIOGRAPHS FOR YOUR PATIENTS.
