Are X-rays Used Only for Diagnosing Broken Bones?
While X-rays are most frequently used to diagnose fractures, they may be ordered for several other reasons as well. For instance, a physician may use X-ray images to aid in the diagnosis of a joint dislocation, embedded foreign object (such as a glass, metal, or wood splinter), digestive issue, kidney stone, or lung condition.
Who Interprets the X-rays?
When you receive an X-ray test at PhysicianOne Urgent Care, your images will be read by your treating provider and reviewed by a board-certified radiologist. We’ve implemented this two-step process for heightened accuracy.
How Is a Broken Bone Treated?
If you are diagnosed with a fracture, we may suggest a splint, cast, and/or crutches to stabilize your injury and promote proper healing. We may also recommend a pain-relieving medication to help you feel better in the meantime. If necessary, we can refer you to an orthopedic specialist near Groton and provide digital copies of your X-ray images to help ensure seamless follow-up care for your injury.
