As part of our commitment to patient care, every Orthopedic Associates office has digital x-ray imaging facilities on-site. This allows us to enhance your experience and allows our providers to have immediate access to your images. The images are stored in your electronic medical records and can be made available to you on cd if needed.
What is an X-Ray?
X-rays are the most common and widely available diagnostic imaging technique. They can provide your doctor with important and potentially life-saving information about many medical conditions and are often used to detect bone fractures and dislocated joints after falls and accidents.
What to expect during an X-Ray?
During an x-ray, the technician positions the part of your body being x-rayed between the x-ray machine and photographic film. You will then be asked to hold still while the machine briefly sends electromagnetic waves (radiation) through your body, exposing the film to reflect your internal structure.
