Sport & Spinal Rehab offers on-site digital x-rays in Jupiter, FL . Having the convenience of on-site digital x-rays prevents you from having to schedule a separate appointment at an imaging facility.
The advanced digital x-rays at Sport & Spinal Rehab deliver less radiation than the old film x-ray machines. Your digital x-ray images are brought up on our computer system where they can be enhanced, inverted, digitally measured, or magnified.
This image modification on the computer minimizes the need for repeat x-rays. Further, your digital x-rays can be e-mailed to you or burned onto a CD. If necessary, Dr. Nevel will perform the digital x-ray right in our office and review the results immediately.
An in-house digital x-ray machine gives us the ability to detect dislocations, arthritis, degenerative joint disease, stress fractures and broken bones immediately so that a proper treatment plan can be developed. If severe conditions are diagnosed such as broken bones, we will refer you to the finest orthopedic doctors available.
While digital x-ray is an extremely useful tool for doctors to diagnose diseases and conditions, x-ray has certain limitations. X-rays cannot directly visualize soft-tissue injuries such as disc herniations and muscle, tendon or ligament tears.
If deemed necessary, Dr. Nevel and will happily refer patients out for advanced imaging including MRI, CT, bone scans, or blood work.
