What is an X-ray?

An X-ray uses electromagnetic waves to create pictures of the internal structures of your body. X-rays produce different shades of black and white images that show bones, organs, soft tissue, and fat, allowing your ER Near Me physician to check for abnormalities like bone fractures, muscle tears, or pneumonia.

The X-ray procedure is painless and only takes a few minutes to capture the images necessary for diagnosis. The medical team ensures you are well-protected from unnecessary radiation by providing lead coverings to protect your health.

Why do I need a CT scan?

Your ER Near Me physician may recommend a computerized tomography (CT) scan to evaluate your bones, soft tissue, and blood vessels.

A CT scan takes a series of X-ray images from different angles of your body that uses computerized technology to create high-quality images.

You may need a CT scan to diagnose:

  • Muscle or bone disorders
  • Confirm internal bleeding
  • Identify a blood clot or infection
  • Evaluate an existing chronic condition

CT scans are painless and safe. This type of test uses low doses of radiation, and the medical team uses the lowest dose possible to capture the images they need for diagnosis.

How does ultrasound work?

Ultrasound technology uses soundwaves to capture pictures of your internal structures. The ER Near Me medical team often uses ultrasound to diagnose unexplained pain, swelling, or signs of infection in the body.

The team also uses ultrasound technology to monitor the health of a fetus. Ultrasound imaging allows the staff to view the baby’s movements while in utero and take important measurements to track development.
