Diagnostic Imaging

X-rays St. Peters & O'Fallon, MO

When you need medical imaging services, you can receive x-rays, MRI studies, and ultrasounds on site at Advanced Bone & Joint. State-of-the-art diagnostic imaging is just another way we provide extraordinary care, close to home.

X-ray

Radiography, or x-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. X-rays are diagnostic images that are created by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the human body to capture the resulting shadows and reflections on a photographic plate.

The most common use of x-rays is to assist in identifying and treating fractures. X-ray images of the spine, joints, and extremities are performed every day at Advanced Bone & Joint, eliminating the need to travel to another diagnostic facility.

Images of an injury can show our doctors the tiniest details, even very fine hairline fractures or chips.  X-ray images produced after orthopaedic treatment helps to ensure that a fracture has been properly aligned and stabilized for healing. Bone x-rays are an essential tool for orthopaedic surgery as well and may be used for spinal repair, joint replacements, or fracture reductions.

When you need x-rays, now you can feel confident that you and your loved ones are getting the best care possible.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a magnetic field and a sophisticated computer system to give reliable and detailed images of the body. In orthopaedics, we use MRI for high quality images of soft tissue areas such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. MRI produces very clear images of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, spine, hip, knee, foot and ankle as well.
