Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic relies on state-of-the-art imaging tools to give the most accurate diagnosis of orthopedic injuries and conditions. Raleigh Orthopaedic Imaging offers X-ray (at all clinic locations), and MRI (available at four clinic locations).
Raleigh Orthopaedic Radiology (X-Ray)
X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging and are commonly used to help diagnose particular problems involving bones. An X-ray sends beams of radiation that pass through the skin and underlying tissues (muscles, ligaments and tendons), when the beams meet the bone, an image is created.
Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic uses on-site digital x-rays to facilitate immediate diagnosis of bone disorders during the patient visit. The digital x-rays are transmitted immediately to be viewed by our providers without a waiting period.
Raleigh Orthopaedic Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is an advanced diagnostic test which produces high resolution pictures or images of the human body without exposure to radiation. MRIs are used to help more clearly review soft tissue and ligaments. MRI uses powerful — but harmless — magnetic field and radiowaves, like the kind transmitted by a FM music station. The combination of radiowaves and magnetic field produce detailed images of body structures.
Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic has a high quality, cost-effective mobile MRI unit that is available at four of our clinic locations: Raleigh Orthopaedic Edwards Mill Office, Raleigh Orthopaedic Garner Office, Raleigh Orthopaedic Cary Office, & Raleigh Orthopaedic North Raleigh Office.
