Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays in Lakewood, CO

Internal injuries can be difficult to diagnose by first glance or a physical examination, requiring a more thorough look before treatment can begin. Imaging tests are available to diagnose internal injuries, including digital x-rays at AFC Urgent Care Lakewood. Our urgent care center has a digital radiology department on-site, allowing us to take images, analyze them and provide you with a diagnosis and begin treatment immediately. AFC Urgent Care Lakewood are able to perform x-rays on walk-in patients seven days a week after an injury, as well as provide efficient treatment during the same visit.

What is the difference between digital and traditional x-rays?

Traditional x-rays and digital x-rays serve largely the same function: capture internal images to allow doctors and physicians to get a better look at injuries to determine the best course of treatment. Traditional x-rays require high amounts of radiation to capture images, which can be harmful to patients. The images from traditional x-rays then need to be brought to a lab in order to have the film developed. Due to the time it takes to process the film, you can be waiting for hours to get a diagnosis.

Traditional films are also large and can be difficult to transport to specialists and store for your records. Digital x-rays are captured and processed in under two minutes, and your physician will be able to zoom in and out to make sure they treat the entire injury, reducing the chance of chronic pain issues due to undetected and untreated injuries.

Digital x-rays can also be saved to a convenient flash drive, which allows for easy storage and can be easily transported between your home and the doctors’ office.

What can be diagnosed with a digital x-ray?

Accidents happen all the time that can lead to injury, from falls to trips, kitchen and sports accidents and minor fender benders. A wide range of injuries can be diagnosed by taking a digital x-ray, including:

  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Muscle sprains and strain
  • Tendon and ligament tears
  • Joint damage and injuries
  • Bruises

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • When should I choose urgent care?

    If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and don’t want to see a doctor, urgent care could be for you. AFC walk-in clinics are able to see patients dealing with allergic reactions, broken bones, colds and flus, and much more.

  • Do I need insurance to visit AFC?

    At AFC we offer very competitive rates for self-pay urgent care and walk-in clinic services. We understand that not everyone may have an insurance plan and we make sure that our out-of-pocket patients are given the same high-quality medical treatment that we give to all our patients.

  • How long will my visit take?

    The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times – often under 15 minutes. The total length of your visit will depend on what you’re being seen for, but many patients can be in and out of our clinics in around 30 minutes.
