Digital X-rays

X-rays are radiographic images that are helpful in identifying injury, deformity, and disease of bones and soft tissues of the body. Digital x-rays are available in our office to provide immediate images and diagnoses for patients. They are also used to compare pre-operative and post-operative outcomes and monitor healing after surgery and fractures.

Common conditions for which x-rays are taken include:

  • Fractures
  • Flat Feet
  • Arthritis, Gouty arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bunion and Hammer Toe Deformities
  • Bone Spurs
  • Pediatric Growth Plate Injury or Abnormality
  • Foreign Bodies/Objects (metal or glass under the skin)
  • Bone Infection

X-rays are not as effective when diagnosing conditions of soft tissue such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, therefore, an MRI may be prescribed by your podiatrist.
