X-ray & MRI Testing at Elevated Health NYC

The Role of Diagnostic Tests in Your Care

During your first physical examination with Elevated Health NYC, we may recommend diagnostic testing to better understand your condition and provide you with the most effective treatment plan possible. These tests may include X-rays, ultrasounds, MRI scans, and nerve studies.

X-rays are a common form of diagnostic imaging that uses radiation to create images of internal structures such as bones, joints, and soft tissues. They can reveal misalignments, fractures, or other abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. They’re quick, painless, and provide vital information.

An MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a test that allows us to see inside your body without making an incision. It uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body's internal structures. This non-invasive test is especially useful for giving a clear view of soft tissues, which can be crucial when diagnosing conditions that aren't apparent on an X-ray.

Nerve studies, also known as nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests, evaluate nerve damage and dysfunction. During this test, small electrodes are attached to your skin, which then send small electrical impulses to stimulate the nerves. The speed and strength of your body's response to these impulses provide valuable information about the health of your nerves.

At Elevated Health NYC, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of care by utilizing advanced diagnostic testing techniques. These tests help us to accurately diagnose your condition and develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses the root of the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to receive the results of a diagnostic test?

The timing varies depending on the type of diagnostic test being performed. X-rays typically provide immediate results, while MRI and nerve studies may take a few days for our team to analyze the images and data.

Once we have the results, we will discuss them with you and determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.

Are these diagnostic tests safe?

Yes! All of our diagnostic tests are considered safe and non-invasive. X-ray machines do use low levels of radiation, but the amount is so small that it poses little to no risk to patients. MRI machines, on the other hand, use magnetic fields and radio waves, which do not emit any radiation at all.

What if I need an MRI or X-ray because of a work-related injury?

At Elevated Health NYC, we are extremely familiar with the federal worker's compensation system. We have helped over 150 cases get accepted in just three years, showing our full commitment to those who have been injured on the job. If you have suffered a work-related injury, we will work with you every step of the way to ensure you receive the treatment you need.

Even if you need a treatment we don't offer, like mental health services or surgery, our providers will be happy to refer you to a trusted specialist. We’ve worked to create a regional network of providers who accept federal workers' compensation cases and are committed to serving those who serve us.

Your well-being is our top priority, and we will do whatever it takes to help you get back to living your life comfortably.
