Imaging at Oregon Institute of Foot Care
When to Get Digital X-Rays & Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging
It is generally advised for patients to come in and get their digital X-rays and diagnostic ultrasound imaging as early as possible if there is a cause for concern. Waiting until the issue gets worse can require more complicated medical solutions that could have been avoided through simpler options.
As soon as symptoms of potentially problematic foot problems arise, patients should have them checked right away. Through this, more serious issues—such as severe deformities that require surgery—can be avoided.
Since digital X-rays and diagnostic imaging are performed at the Oregon Institute of Foot Care, the next steps generally take place immediately after the results of the scans are complete. Instructions for treatments, care, or necessary lifestyle changes will be provided depending on the specifics of the diagnosed medical issue.
Cost of Digital X-Rays and Diagnostic Ultrasound
The cost of the digital X-rays and diagnostic ultrasound imaging may depend on which type of imaging test is used and how many areas need to be scanned. These tests are typically covered by health insurance providers. Price details can be discussed when patients come in for a consultation.
