What Is Diagnosed by X-ray at PhysicianOne Urgent Care?

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, X-ray technology is an important diagnostic tool that allows our medical experts to make timely, accurate diagnoses. While most people associate X-rays with broken bones, they can do a lot more than that. Here is how we use X-ray technology to diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments.
The Power of X-rays
While they can provide clear evidence of fractured and broken bones, X-rays also offer accurate insight into a number of health complications, including:
Pneumonia, congestion or fluid in the lungs: An X-ray can reveal fluid in the chest cavity or a collapsed lung.
• Joint dislocations: X-rays can be used to confirm a joint dislocation and may reveal broken bones or other damage to the joint.
• Foreign objects: Digital imaging can unveil undetected foreign objects that may have entered a wound during an accident.
• Kidney stones: An abdominal X-ray can reveal the presence of kidney stones.
X-rays can also be used to detect bowel obstructions and other various stomach issues. What’s more, X-ray technology can be used to rule out some of the most common causes of certain ailments, so our medical professionals can better determine the severity and cause of a patient’s symptoms.
Timely Care that Fits Your Schedule
When you have an injury or illness, it’s not always practical to sit for hours at an emergency room or wait for an opening at your doctor’s office. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we have digital X-ray services for adults and children, so we can provide full-service walk-in care, right when you need it.
A board certified radiologist reviews each X-ray, so you know you will get an accurate diagnosis. Our medical professionals can diagnose orthopedic injuries and also help refer you to an orthopedic specialist, should you need one.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
