The trend in the modern chiropractic office is a shift towards fewer chiropractors that own radiographic equipment. While there are multiple reasons for this shift, it is important for the chiropractic physician to understand the importance of radiographs and the evidence-based practice guidelines in the use of imaging procedures in chiropractic evaluation and the use of imaging to establish treatment protocols, without violating sound clinical decision tools.
