Experience patient-centered care at an efficient diagnostic facility. Turn to ImageCare at Sparta for medical imaging services in Sparta, NJ. We specialize in providing X-rays to our community.
Radiographs, more commonly known as X-rays, are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. Our radiologists use a variety of ways to produce an image, each tailored to provide the best view of the organ or structure of interest.
This noninvasive medical test helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. X-ray imaging is the fastest and easiest way to view and assess broken bones as well as joint or spine injuries.
There is no special preparation required for most bone radiographs. You will be asked to remove jewelry, eyeglasses, and any metal objects that could show up on the images and overlap important findings. Additionally, you may be asked to change into a gown before your examination.
X-rays are generally safe. That said, imaging involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. More X-rays means more exposure. The dose of radiation used in an X-ray is always as low as possible.
The possibility of X-ray causing any harm to your unborn child is very small. If you are pregnant, please make sure your doctor is aware so they can determine if an X-ray is necessary. It might be possible to postpone or modify.
The medical staff at ImageCare at Sparta is ready to provide a comfortable environment for your X-ray needs. Give us a call to schedule your diagnostic imaging services in Sparta, NJ.
