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.
