Comprehensive imaging services help your orthopedic physician effectively diagnose your condition and determine the best course of treatment.
Imaging Services at Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida include an advanced digital radiography system and MRI. Radiography, or x-ray, is the simplest way for a physician to determine bone injury or disease, such as a fracture or arthritis. Traditionally this is done by viewing x-ray film on a light box.
Digital radiography is a cutting edge x-ray that provides more detail than traditional x-ray and eliminates the need to develop films, which reduces patient wait time.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows our physicians to diagnose conditions that x-ray does not pick up, such as ligament tears and tissue injury. MRI uses safe and painless magnetic and radio waves to produce high-resolution images for diagnosing bone, tissue, joint and musculoskeletal conditions.
