Providing Convenient Digital X-Rays for St. Johns, MI, Patients
Ouch Urgent Care is committed to making convenient and affordable nonemergency health care available to our St. Johns, Michigan, community. Our urgent care clinic offers a wide variety of diagnostic screening tools, including onsite digital X-ray imaging. Medical professionals use X-ray imaging as a non-invasive means to detect and pinpoint the source of pain in a number of common illnesses and injuries. Examples include:
- Dislocated joints
- Bone fractures
- Fluid in the lungs
- Foreign objects in the body
If you’ve had X-rays taken before, you more than likely were asked to wear a heavy lead vest as a protective measure. This is because traditional X-ray imaging utilizes very small amounts of radiation to create an image of the screened area for your physician to study. Traditional X-rays are considered safe, but digital X-rays, or digital radiology, are an advancement that reduces the time and cost needed for your doctor to create an image while utilizing 80% less radiation than traditional screening. This means we’re often able to offer our walk-in patients quick and affordable X-rays to get on the road to recovery without having to visit another provider.
