Does urgent care do X-rays?
Most urgent care clinics, including ours, have an in-house X-ray machine and can provide onsite X-rays. Actually, urgent care is a great place to go for your X-rays, minor injuries, or minor illnesses because they can provide X-rays without the need for an appointment. This is especially convenient and sometimes even necessary for injuries like minor fractures that could become worse if they’re not diagnosed and treated quickly. Here at AFC Urgent Care, we have an in-house, state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine, as well as fully capable specialists who can easily diagnose and treat common conditions.
You might be wondering whether the ER (emergency room) would be a good place to go to get an X-ray done. The ER is the only option whenever a situation is or could be life-threatening. If a situation is not life-threatening and you’re sure, then urgent care is the better option, as there are no wait times for patients with minor conditions who need an X-ray. Urgent care can provide X-rays for conditions like minor concussions, simple fractures, minor sprains, mild cases of the flu, mild cases of pneumonia, etc.
What is the difference between a digital X-ray and a normal X-ray?
Traditional X-rays have been around since the early 1900s, but the addition of computer technology has significantly improved X-rays. Today, X-rays are digital, more efficient, more cost-effective, and safer for the patient. They’re safer because they produce about 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays. With a digital X-ray, there’s a lower risk to the patient. It’s true that traditional X-rays are considered safe, but it’s also true that they could and perhaps should be safer, and this is what digital X-rays are! There’s another advantage to digital over traditional: digital X-ray images last forever, while traditional images degrade over time.
Here at AFC Urgent Care, our X-ray machine is digital and state-of-the-art. We care about your health and we also care about your convenience! This is why the X-ray machine we use is onsite. You can come see us right away, even today, and get an X-ray on the spot. No appointment necessary.
