At Orthopedic Associates our radiology department was designed for advanced diagnostic capabilities utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Whether you need an X-ray, MRI, or Electromyelogram (EMG/NCV), our staff of professional radiologic technologists are here to assist you. They will take the time to explain the procedure to you and assure that you are comfortable throughout the exam.
There is no need to wait for an X-ray or to travel to an outside facility fighting traffic along the way in order to get an X-ray. You will not only waste your time but delay your diagnosis. Every Orthopedic Associates office has state-of-the-art imaging facilities on-site to ensure you get the test you need, when you need it. As a result of our commitment to provide you the best care, Orthopedic Associates has integrated digital X-Ray in our offices which enhances our patient’s experience. Images are available immediately for doctors’ use. The images are stored in your electronic medical chart and if you should need them they can be made available on film or CD.
When ordinary x-rays aren’t enough for diagnosis, your doctor may order an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) exam. MRI has proven very valuable for diagnosing many joint and musculoskeletal disorders, enabling doctors to see body structures that may not be seen utilizing other methods. We can conveniently perform MRI exams of the extremities (limbs and joints) and shoulders right in our Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, and Kingston offices. Appointments for MRI are even conveniently offered on Saturdays.
