At the Gelb Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, onsite digital X-ray technology provides convenience to patients and assists our medical staff in efficiently diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions. In addition to diagnostics, digital X-rays are also periodically used by orthopaedic surgeons to help evaluate the progress of treatment.
As with other medical personnel on staff at our orthopaedic practice, the X-ray technicians are expertly trained to assist patients and physicians alike. The staff X-ray technicians have many years of experience − producing optimal images for reviewing the area of the body being evaluated. Periodically, a patient will be asked to pose in such a way that facilitates the imaging process. X-rays used for diagnostic imaging are produced using low-level radiation at a targeted spot. The process is painless, yet significantly beneficial for proper analysis and treatment.
For some diagnosis of orthopaedic injuries, patients may be referred to radiologists for additional advanced imaging studies, such as MRI or CT scans, to confirm diagnosis. Individuals with questions about X-ray services should call our office:
