If you are experiencing pain in your joints and visit one of our orthopedic specialists, they may send you to our radiology department to get a closer look at what might be going on inside your body.
Tests We Offer
Orthopedic Specialty Group treats a wide variety of conditions, diseases, and injuries related to the musculoskeletal system. To properly diagnose and treat patients, we offer a range of tests, including:
- PET scan
- CT scan
Rapid advancements in radiology allow our specialists to create an even more comprehensive view of what is going on with your joints, ligaments, tendons, and bones. One of these recent advancements is the ability to see soft tissues that line the joint. These soft tissues are often inflamed when someone complains of joint pain.
By having a clearer understanding of what is causing the pain inside your musculoskeletal system, we can work with your orthopedic specialist to determine the best course of action and treatment. Before, orthopedic surgeons would have had to perform arthroscopies to clearly see why the joint is not functioning correctly. Now, with the new tests, we can save patients from painful surgery.
If you have been referred to the Orthopedic Speciality Group, our team will coordinate closely to identify the source of your discomfort. If radiolgy testing is ordered by an orthopedic specialist in one of our clinics, the test will be performed in house. No need to travel to a different location or to a hospital.
