On site x-rays are convenient for many patient’s office visits at Frederick Foot & Ankle. X-rays are useful for visits where the patient has pain of unknown origin, an incident where there was trauma to the lower limb, post-operative appointments to monitor healing, helps to locate some foreign bodies, and fracture follow-up visits to note the progress.
In the office, we have trained medical staff to take the images and more than capable doctors to read the images. At both locations x-rays are digital, meaning no wait time to have the x-ray pictures developed and explanation of your ailments can be viewed along with the doctor on the computer screen in your exam room. At the end of your appointment the digital images can be burned onto a CD so it can be taken to your next medical appointment if necessary (charges may apply).
The best part is that an x-ray order can be written, carried out, and read all within your initial visit. This is great news for those that need and appointment and imaging right away, same day appointments are available at Frederick Foot & Ankle.
