When Is an X-Ray Necessary?
X-Rays are used to diagnose a wide variety of conditions that may require immediate attention. We examine each patient to determine if an x-ray is the best option to diagnose or monitor your condition.
Some common reasons for an x-ray include:
Foreign objects lodged inside the body
Infections such as pneumonia
Swelling around joints
X-rays give doctors a useful tool to evaluate and accurately diagnose emergency medical conditions.
Can Urgent Care Medical Centers Do X-Rays?
Yes! In fact, we can do more than just take x-rays at Founders Family Medicine and Urgent Care. We offer diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical issues, including chronic conditions and urgent care.
We are a full-service medical office with on-site x-ray and lab services. Whether you’ve had an accident with an injured bone or suffer from shortness of breath, our team will examine you, review your medical history and recommend the necessary tests to make an accurate diagnosis.
What Should I Expect When Getting an X-Ray at An Urgent Care Clinic?
The actual x-ray process should only last about 10 minutes. You will likely feel some pressure while the technician takes the images. There might even be a small amount of radiation exposure involved with this procedure. However, most people experience no ill effects from these types of exposures.
Once our team processes the x-ray, we will review the results with you and discuss the next steps.
What Are Common Conditions That Can Be Diagnosed by X-Ray?
Our most common requests for x-rays are to check for fractures and pneumonia. Yet, we use x-rays regularly to diagnose other conditions.
Here’s a list of some of the most common diagnoses made using x-rays:
Lung infections like pneumonia
Heart problems like heart failure and angina pectoris
Urgent Care Offers A More Affordable Solution
At Founders Family Medicine and Urgent Care, we understand how frustrating waiting in an ER can be. That’s why we offer scheduled urgent care visits.
Not only is the wait at the emergency room unpredictable, but it’s also more expensive. In fact, an ER visit for an ankle or arm injury costs around $600 at the ER. Comparatively, a visit to our urgent care facility for the same type of injury typically costs under $200.
Urgent care provides a predictable, trusted and local care option to save you time and money.
