Skip the emergency room and walk right in to get a fast and accurate diagnosis via X-Ray!
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.
In addition to immediate care services for non-critical injuries and illnesses, our urgent care clinic offers on-site x-ray services. X-rays are images that allow our medical team to get a better look at what’s going on inside your body. These images can show the cause of a problem or show areas that are broken or fractured. They can capture areas of the body including fingers, hands, arms, legs, feet, chest, lungs, and more. A chest or lung x-ray may help determine conditions such as pneumonia or tuberculosis whereas a foot X-ray can help show fractures or breaks in the bones.
If you have an injury or illness that requires an X-ray, our team can provide you the care you need quickly, efficiently, and affordably. As a walk-in clinic in San Francisco, CA, no appointment is ever necessary. Our team will help determine the cause of the problem and provide you with the treatment you need or refer you to a surgeon for further treatment. Stop in today for minor medical emergencies.
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.
