Medical imaging is vital for anyone suffering a personal injury because it detects internal trauma that may not be obvious from a physical exam.
A personal injury could arise from a work or auto accident, personal assault, or falls caused by someone’s negligence. They may result in extensive and sometimes complex musculoskeletal problems including fractures, sprains, and strains.
Personal injuries could also damage your nerves or organs, blood vessels could rupture, resulting in potentially life-threatening internal bleeding.
Personal injuries could have long-term effects that reduce your quality of life. Medical imaging helps to ensure you get any treatment required promptly and prevents the complications that can arise if you don’t get the care that you need for the physical trauma.
An accurate diagnosis saves you and your health care provider considerable time and could help prevent complex invasive surgeries.
Several imaging techniques are available that enable your provider to accurately diagnose personal injuries without requiring invasive procedures.
Digital X-rays can be useful, especially for fractures, but they don’t produce the same exceptional detail as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI is one of the most comprehensive medical imaging tools, producing highly detailed images of soft tissues, organs, and bones.
LA MRI Center, Inc.’s state-of-the-art Hitachi Airis II™ Open MRI technology is significantly less noisy than older MRIs. Open MRI won’t cause claustrophobia, which can be a problem for some patients if they have to lie inside a tunnel-shaped MRI for their procedure.
Our highly experienced staff scans your organs, tissues, brain, and musculoskeletal system to identify any damage that might have occurred. The MRI results are promptly sent to your medical team.
LA MRI Center, Inc. uses noninvasive personal injury medical imaging techniques that won’t cause pain or worsen your condition. Open MRI involves lying on a table while the machine transmits magnetic energy and radio waves into your body. You won’t feel this, but you’ll be aware of the machine working.
When the MRI is complete, LA MRI Center, Inc. stores the data and sends medical reports to your provider.
