Serving Midland/Odessa, TX
One of the most important diagnostic tools used in Orthopedics is x-ray. At Urgent Orthopedic Specialists we have a state of the art digital x-ray machine that provides the best quality images available.
Our x-ray technicians have over 30 years of experience and our x-ray protocols are tailored to orthopedics. We are able to take better quality images and obtain views that give our orthopedic specialists the most information for your condition.
For example, knee x-rays are often taken laying down at urgent care and emergency room facilities, however, when diagnosing and treating arthritis it is best to obtain images standing and squatting to gain a better understanding of how advanced the arthritis is. When treating fractures, the angle of the view and quality of the x-ray image can make a profound impact on the appearance of the fracture.
MRI Imaging is available in the office through Midland Memorial Hospital. The MRI machine is calibrated specifically for musculoskeletal injuries with readings performed by the nation’s leading radiology group, NationalRad.
