Why is Diagnostic Imaging Useful?

Using imaging techniques, such as x-rays or ultrasounds, your urgent care doctor will be able to see what is going on inside of you. For issues, such as bone fractures or internal pain, diagnostic imaging lets us help you without performing exploratory surgery. As a result, we can diagnose your condition faster, without the costly use of surgical procedures, as well as more efficiently. This means we can provide you with the best pain management solution possible for your current medical situation.
What Types of Diagnostic Imaging is Available at Brooklyn Urgent Care?
Here at Brooklyn Urgent Care, we have the technology on site for several diagnostic imaging techniques. These include x-rays, MRIs, and ultrasounds. X-rays are useful for viewing the musculoskeletal system, while MRIs are used to view the brain. Ultrasounds are most commonly associated with pregnancy. However, we also use ultrasounds to check your blood flow and internal organs. These methods help us to diagnose your medical condition so we can best manage your pain here at BKUC.
Is Diagnostic Imaging Safe to Use?
Yes, diagnostic imaging methods including x-rays and MRIs are safe to use when provided by a healthcare professional. The amount of radiation used with diagnostic imaging is very low, which is why the medical industry as a whole has accepted the use of imaging. However, to ensure your total safety we only use diagnostic imaging when we are sure that it can benefit your health.
