CT Scan, Ultrasound, and X-Ray Q & A

What are the advantages of imaging?

While it may be easy to diagnose a broken arm just by looking at it, more often than not, the doctors at Village Emergency Centers need to take a closer look at what’s going internally to determine the best course of action. Thanks to advanced imaging, the doctors can get a clear picture of your bones, soft tissue, and organs without the need for surgery.

Village Emergency Centers is equipped with the latest imaging equipment, including CT scanning, X-rays, and ultrasound, which provide almost immediate results, allowing the doctor to get you on the road to recovery much faster.

What is an X-ray?

One of the important diagnostic tools in the Village Emergency Centers is the X-ray machine. X-rays provide a quick snapshot, providing your doctor with the first glimpse of your internal structures. X-rays are commonly used to diagnose:

  • Broken bones
  • Tumors or growths
  • Respiratory issues, such as pneumonia
  • Joint problems
  • Back problems
  • Abdominal or pelvic issues

What is a CT scan?

A CT scan, or computerized tomography, takes the X-ray a step further. A CT scan is a combination of X-ray images, taken from different angles, which a computer program pulls together and processes to render a more complete picture of the area of concern.

The doctors at Village Emergency Centers often order a CT scan to:

  • Detect internal bleeding
  • Check heart function
  • Spot tumors or growths
  • Investigate digestive blockages
  • Diagnose bone or tissue diseases or irregularities

What is an ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a type of medical imaging that uses sound waves that bounce off your internal organs, tissues, and fluids to produce pictures of the inside of your body. The doctors at Village Emergency Centers often turn to an ultrasound to:

  • Examine the pelvic area
  • Examine the abdominal organs
  • Diagnose certain cancers
  • Evaluate blood flow and blood vessels
  • Diagnose certain diseases, such as gallbladder disease
  • Examine a fetus
  • Assist in placing a central venous catheter, or a central line, into a large vein
