NW Injury & Rehab Center incorporates the latest in digital x-ray technology. Digital x-ray is a very safe, efficient, and cost effective tool for accurately diagnosing problem areas.
Digital x-ray imaging provides the highest resolution currently available. Our doctors have the ability to visualize the smallest details through enhanced superior image quality providing improved diagnostic accuracy often lacking in traditional plain film.
The speed and efficiency of the captured x-ray provides doctors and hospitals significant improvement and transferability of images outside of our clinic. And several doctors from different hospitals can read the x-ray at the same time.
However, digital x-rays are not always an absolute necessity. We take careful consideration before we recommend you have one.
There are several factors to consider when determining whether or not a patient requires x-rays. For example, some patients may just require continued treatment and will not need an x-ray prior to services, while other times digital x-ray is a good entry point to visualize subluxations, misalignments, broken bones, or types of arthritic conditions.
Our doctors also frequently incorporate the use of the latest in 3T MRI technology allowing us to pick up on finite details of patient injury where digital x-ray can fall short.
MRI is a superior tool to visualize inflammation in soft tissues due to strains/sprains, spinal disc herniations or ruptures, pinched nerves, and ligament tears. Our doctors can get our patients an MRI within days and sometimes even the same day, if it’s determined that you need one.
