Feeling pain in your joints? Twisted your ankle playing basketball and you are not sure if you broke it? Our digital x-rays can give you peace of mind by providing fast and accurate diagnoses to ultimately provide you with the best treatment possible. If you need further evaluation, we will connect you with a specialist within your network.

Preparing for Your X-Ray

Different types of X-rays require different types of preparation. Our professionals will advise you accordingly.

In general, you will need to undress whatever area needs the x-ray. If possible, wear loose-fitting garments or light layers to make the process as easy as possible. 

During your X-ray, the machine will send a safe level of radiation through your body to create an image on a specialized plate. You cannot feel an X-ray. For some procedures, you will be given a contrast medium beforehand to generate a clearer image. If this is the case, you will want to drink plenty of fluids after your X-ray to get rid of the contact medium. Otherwise, you can expect to be able to resume your normal activities if possible. During your X-ray, you will need to remain as still as possible to keep the image clear. Your X-ray may only take a few minutes, or longer for more complex procedures. X-ray results are available in minutes, allowing possible breaks and fractures to be addressed immediately.
