What is Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX)?

Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) is cutting-edge technology that can detect and diagnose soft tissue injuries that could never be seen before! Standard x-ray tests, MRI and CT's commonly miss injuries because the patient is not in motion. Instead, the patient is asked to stand still or lay still and to hold his or her breath. The Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) test finds injuries that are evident only when you move. If your pain increases with movement, common sense tells you that your injuries should be examined "in motion" with the advanced technology of Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX)!

Whether you are a patient who is in pain, a doctor who cannot diagnose the source of your patient's pain, or an attorney who needs to prove your client's injury, Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) could be the answer for you. Contact Dr. Ben Breidenbach at 608-781-9880 today to schedule a Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) work up.

How is Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) different?

There are several major differences between Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) and standard x-ray tests, such as MRI or CT scans. They include:

  • Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) produces crystal clear, full-motion x-ray video images. Standard x-rays produce a static video on film that is often too blurry to detect any injury.
  • Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) video images show black bones on a white background. Standard x-rays show white bones on a black background, making it difficult to see damage.
  • Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) produces 30 x rays per second; standard x-rays produce 15 x rays per second. In fact, you would have to be exposed to more than 3,200 x-rays to generate what the Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) machine sees!
  • Standard x-rays don't always detect soft tissue injury and ligament damage. Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) can diagnose these injuries in as little as 15 minutes.
  • During standard x-ray tests, patients are told to stay still and hold their breath while the images are taken. During a Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX), patients demonstrate which movements cause them pain. People get hurt in motion, so doesn't it make more sense to evaluate them in motion?

If you have had negative MRIs and x-rays in the past and are still in pain, contact Dr. Ben Breidenbach to schedule a Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) work up.

How does Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) work?

Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) utilizes video fluoroscopy and x-ray video technology to take full motion digital x-rays of any body joint in motion. Video fluoroscopy is used to analyze bones and joints, while the digital x-rays allow you and the doctor to view your results while they are being taken.

Video Fluoroscopy:

Video fluoroscopy technology allows doctors to evaluate body joints in motion and record the results on videotape. Video fluoroscopy eliminates the need for repeat studies, which reduces radiation exposure and allows for a quick diagnosis. In addition, video fluoroscopy produces x-ray video images that have better resolution, frame-by-frame stop motion, and real-time audio recording. Video fluoroscopy combines traditional fluoroscopy with x-ray video technology to track and analyze the motion of joints. Video fluoroscopy can reveal soft tissue injury and ligament damage that standard radiology tests, such as MRI or CT scans, often can't detect.

Video fluoroscopy is one of the most reliable sources of evidence for soft tissue injury and ligamentous damage because of its ability to capture and record these real-time x-ray video images. Unlike standard x-ray tests, video fluoroscopy provides a moving image in real time. With one simple push of a button, your x-ray video images come to life so both you and your doctor can see the injury and decide the best course of treatment.

Dynamic Video Overlay and Picture in Picture (PIP) Technology:

Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) utilizes dynamic video overlay (DVO) and Picture in Picture (PIP) technology to provide verifiable evidence of connective and soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash and ligament damage. With DVO, the radiologist's report is overlaid on top of the digital x-rays, making the injuries evident to anyone who needs to prove the damage, including attorneys and insurance companies. PIP displays the patient's picture on the digital x-rays, leaving no doubt that the images belong to them.

Are you suffering from pain that your doctor cannot diagnose? Are you a doctor who needs to diagnose your patient's pain? Are you an attorney who needs to prove the source of your client's pain? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) test at may be right for you. Contact Dr. Ben Breidenbach today to schedule an appointment.

How can doctors use Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX)?

Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) helps doctors make an appropriate and accurate diagnosis for patients with soft tissue injury, whiplash, or ligament damage. DMX can reveal soft tissue injury in as little as 15 minutes by demonstrating abnormal movements of bones and joints. In addition, Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) allows doctors to:

  • Support their diagnosis and prove why they are administering treatment.
  • Make an informed, reliable, and accurate diagnosis.
  • Improve patient understanding.
  • Substantiate patient care.

If you are a doctor who would like to schedule a Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) test for you patient, please contact Dr. Ben Breidenbach today to make an appointment.

How can attorneys use Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX)?

Attorneys must show proof of injury in order to receive compensation for their clients.

Before Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX), some attorneys were forced to settle for a much smaller amount because it was difficult to prove soft tissue injury and ligament damage with standard x-ray tests. Now, all that attorneys have to do is show the Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) results and insurance companies want to settle right away. Some attorneys have even collected policy limits for their clients by using DMX!

In addition, Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) can:

  • Rule out fraudulent soft tissue injury claims by identifying stable ligamentous structures.
  • Provide proof of soft tissue injury, whiplash, and ligament damage.
  • Increase attorney referrals by qualifying as an expert witness in the use and interpretation of DMX.
  • Allow attorneys to take control of their depositions, arbitrations, and courtroom presentations by providing evidence of soft tissue injury that could never be seen before. It also helps prevent 80 percent of an attorney's practice potential from going out the door.

If you are a patient suffering from an injury, a doctor who needs to diagnose an injury, or an attorney who needs to prove an injury, a DMX test may be right for you. Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) can diagnose whiplash, soft tissue injury, and ligament damage in as little as 15 minutes. Contact Dr. Ben Breidenbach to schedule a diagnostic test.
