Broken bones, sprains, and fractures: these are what most people think of when “x-rays" come to mind. X-rays are an extremely valuable tool for physicians when diagnosing a variety of conditions. Our East Meadow walk-in urgent care clinic is outfitted with state-of-the-art, digital x-ray systems to provide an accurate diagnosis with high-quality images.
AFC Urgent Care East Meadow's digital x-ray services are available for the following areas of the body:
Our board-certified physicians are experts in providing safe treatment for a variety of injuries, and x-rays are just one tool at a doctor’s disposal for diagnosing injuries. While traditional x-rays were created on photographic film, today’s x-rays are more sophisticated and captured on digital sensors rather than on film. This saves precious time and resources, allowing quicker diagnosis and treatment of the patient.
X-rays, particularly digital x-rays, are useful in providing your doctor a clear view of the dense material inside the body, particularly your bones. Other imaging tests may prove useful for less dense areas of the body, such as the joints, muscles, or tendons.
If you need x-rays, our skilled medical staff can give you quick, efficient, affordable care. No appointments are necessary!
If you’re suffering from an undiagnosed, non-life-threatening injury, simply walk into our East Meadow urgent care clinic for prompt treatment.
X-rays do use small amounts of radiation, but they’re generally safe for adults and children. That being said, there are some cases where they can be damaging – to developing babies, for instance. Your AFC provider will take your circumstances into account and answer your unique questions about safety.
Your local AFC team can help you answer that question when you contact them. If you’ve experienced a fall or other injury and are in pain, an X-ray could help determine the best course of treatment. They’re also used in a variety of other circumstances.
At AFC, we always strive to get you in and out as quickly as possible, and the X-ray itself should only take around 15 minutes
