Imaging referrals available at Unifying Health Center use X-rays or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to get an in-depth view of the inside of your body. Doing so helps your specialist diagnose diseases, arthritis-related tissue degeneration, and injuries to help them choose the most appropriate treatment for your condition.

There are numerous benefits associated with imaging procedures, such as:

  • No pain
  • No downtime
  • Fast and painless
  • Highly effective

With imaging referrals from the Unifying Health Center team, you can save money because of discounted rates.

Why might my doctor recommend an imaging procedure?

Dr. Pathak may suggest you undergo an imaging procedure if he suspects you have one of the following conditions:

  • Tissue degeneration
  • Organ problems
  • Torn ligaments
  • Tumors
  • Brain or spinal cord issues
  • Fractures
  • Other injuries
  • Pneumonia
  • Cancer

Imaging procedures can detect a wide array of diseases and other medical problems that your specialist might not be aware of after completing a physical examination. 

What happens during imaging procedures?

You can expect the following while undergoing X-rays or MRIs:

MRIs

During an MRI, you lie down on a table that slides into a tunnel-shaped machine. You must stay still during the procedure to ensure the most effective results. An MRI is painless, however, you may hear some loud sounds. Your technician offers you earplugs if the noise bothers you.

X-rays

When getting X-rays, you might wear a lead apron during the procedure to protect some parts of your body from radiation. You lie still while an X-ray machine emits electromagnetic energy into certain parts of your body to create pictures. Bones show up as white, fat shows up as gray, and air in your lungs appears black in X-ray images.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After undergoing imaging procedures, there’s no downtime, so you can resume a normal routine right away. Your specialist reviews the results of your X-rays or MRIs and lets you know the next best steps. They may suggest further diagnostic testing or treatments as needed to ensure the best health outcomes.
