Prime Care Partners uses cutting edge digital X-ray equipment, providing your high-resolution images to be viewed quickly. This approach allows your provider to zoom in on any area for remarkable detail. Additionally, these files may be placed on a CD and shared with your other providers.
X-rays are normally used to help your health care provider figure out what's going on with you and how you should be treated. Sometimes, this information may be lifesaving.
Patients sometimes ask about radiation. The amount of radiation used in x-ray examinations is small, and the chance that x-rays will cause problems is very low. If the x-ray is needed to find out about a medical problem, then that small risk is certainly worth taking.
If you have questions - ask how the x-ray might help in your treatment. Feel free to talk with your provider; you have a right to understand why an x-ray is suggested.
