Our on-site, modern digital X-ray equipment and brand-new ultrasound machine provide high-quality images to help quickly diagnose many disorders. X-rays can be used to identify
- Abdominal masses
- Bladder stones
- Foreign bodies
- Other internal problems
When necessary, we also send our X-ray images to consulting experts electronically, to get further diagnosis, or to confirm what we see. These results are typically ready within a day or two, and sometimes faster.
Ultrasound can be used on its own or in conjunction with X-rays to identify problems. Many clinics require an outside specialist to come in and perform the exam, but by having our own machine, we can typically do ultrasounds on the same day as your visit, if needed. In the case of an emergency, this can save you the hassle and expense of a trip to a specialty or emergency clinic.
Ultrasound imaging can be used to evaluate the heart and abdomen, and identify issues such as heart disease, pancreatitis and underlying cancers.
