What is an X-ray?

Medical X-rays allow the medical team at Carolina Urgent Care to have an image of what’s taking place inside your body. It allows them to see what the naked eye can’t. 

X-rays pass through your body and take images of your bones, internal organs, body tissues, and more. The images are then projected onto a film or sent through a digital file that connects to a computer. The image clearly shows your bones, which appear white, while less dense body parts remain dark.

X-rays are also used in examinations and procedures like computer tomography (CT) scans, mammograms, and fluoroscopy.

When is an X-ray necessary?

Your provider at Carolina Urgent Care may order an X-ray to take images of a certain part of your body to evaluate a particular injury or issue.

X-rays are often ordered because a patient has pain, a trauma to the body, or a disease. 

X-rays can detect the following:

  • Tumors
  • Cancers
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Enlarged heart
  • Fluid in your lungs
  • Blockages in your blood vessels
  • Digestive issues
  • Infections
  • Arthritis
  • Tooth decay
  • Foreign objects lodged or swallowed in your body
  • Osteoporosis

After your scan, your provider evaluates the images and assesses the information. The team also considers your symptoms, family history, age, and weight. Once they collect the important data, they can decide on your customized treatment plan.

What are the benefits of having onsite X-ray services?

Many urgent care facilities don’t provide X-ray services, but Carolina Urgent Care does, which provides convenience for patients. You don’t have to drive or be transported to a different location if your doctor orders X-rays to be done. You can have an all-encompassing appointment in one location to meet your medical needs.

The practice also offers comprehensive lab testing and screening services to give you the convenience of receiving results quickly.
