Treating You with State-Of-The-Art Technology

You’re likely familiar with an X-ray- one of the most widely used imaging tests in the medical field. X-ray machines use safe, low doses of radiation to create images of the internal structures in your body. This technology has been incorporated into countless diagnostic methods and procedures for a wide range of health issues.

Jupiter Medical Urgent Care Centers in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Stuart and Jupiter are equipped with state-of-the-art X-ray technology. Our medical professionals will schedule you for an X-ray if they feel it is necessary for a diagnosis.

Chest X-Rays

You may have a chest X-ray performed to assess any the status of your heart, lungs, or the bones surrounding these organs.

Specific conditions a chest X-ray can check for include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Cancer
  • Heart enlargement
  • Pleural or pericardial effusion (fluid build-ups)

X-Rays for Extremities

An X-ray of your extremities applies to arms, legs, hands, feet, ankles, shoulders, hips, and knees. This type of X-ray focuses on examining your bones and tissues surrounding them. You may receive an X-ray of one of your extremities if you are suspected to have a broken bone or fracture.

This type of X-ray can reveal injuries and conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Tumors
  • Birth defects
  • Infections
  • Joint abnormalities

Safe & Effective X-Ray Procedures

No matter what kind of X-ray you undergo, the medical providers at Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care will perform the procedure with care. Be certain that your medical records are updated to reflect previous X-rays you have undergone, as it can be dangerous to expose yourself to the radiation too frequently.
