OrthoConnecticut

At OrthoConnecticut, we offer state-of-the art diagnostic imaging with advanced digital radiography. Each of our offices house high quality digital Xray technology and our highly trained radiologic technologists work closely with our orthopedic surgeons and PAs to obtain the best and most accurate imaging to help provide a clear diagnosis and treatment plan. For more complex issues that require more advanced imaging or MRI, we will prescribe imaging at one of the fully equipped radiology practices in the region. Your physician will discuss the results with you soon after your office visit, providing you with the comfort of having an understanding about your condition or injury promptly.

We understand that a sound and accurate diagnosis is a crucial element of the expertise we offer our patients, and we continually strive to maintain the most comprehensive and highest quality offerings in digital imaging.

Digital Xray
Digital Xray is superior to traditional film Xray. With digital technology, a patient’s Xray experience is faster and less stressful. The use of digital Xray eliminates the need for film processing and allows the image to be viewed on a computer screen in the patient exam room. The images produced with digital technology are clearer resulting in a more accurate diagnosis.

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound is used to diagnose and treat patient injuries and conditions. Sound waves are used to produce images of a patient’s internal body tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body). Ultrasound gel is applied directly to the patient’s skin and a small ultrasound head (transducer) is moved over the area of concern. The ultrasound head collects the “sounds” and the “sounds” are transmitted back to a computer where an image(s) is produced. Ultrasound imaging is safe and painless.
