MRI, X-ray, & DEXA Bone Density Scans

X-ray, DEXA and MRI in Sarasota, FL

Advanced SportsMedicine Center wants to make your experience with us as easy as possible, so we offer on-site diagnostic capabilities in our convenient Sarasota office. You won’t have to drive to the hospital or some other location for an MRI, DEXA bone density scan, or X-ray; we do it all here in the office. When you meet with Dr. John Moor or one of our other skilled providers, they will let you know if you need an X-ray, MRI, or something else.

MRI

Orthopedic doctors use MRIs to study parts of the body that are made of soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage (structures that an X-ray won’t show). MRIs are commonly used for diagnosing orthopedic injuries and sports medicine conditions.

Digital X-ray

The first step in diagnosing an orthopedic problem is typically through digital X-ray. Our orthopedic doctor may also request an arthrogram injection, which is an injection of dye that aids in the interpretation of X-ray images, especially for joint X-rays. These injections are generally called for when the patient has unexplainable joint pain.

DEXA Bone Density Scan

Advanced SportsMedicine Center can also perform a DEXA bone density scan in the office. DEXA stands for dual energy x-ray absorbitometry. The scan emits a very low level of radiation and is a quick and painless procedure. It is most often used to diagnose osteoporosis.

Nerve Conduction Study

If nerve function is being questioned, as is the case with carpal tunnel syndrome, the orthopedic physician may order a nerve conduction study (NCS). An NCS is generally conducted along with an electromyogram (EMG) to measure nerve function and pinpoint the specific source of the problem.
