At Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC), we fully understand that patients feel most comfortable when they are relaxed and understand what to expect when they have to undergo an unfamiliar medical test or procedure. It is not uncommon for some patients to find themselves feeling a bit unnerved or uneasy surrounded by the somewhat unusual looking equipment associated with orthopedic medicine. Our goal is to make sure that you are as physically and emotionally comfortable as possible. We strive to do our best to assure that you understand and feel confident in the care that you receive.
X-Ray imaging tests are the most commonly used type of imaging to examine different parts of the body. An x-ray is probably the first and foremost piece of diagnostic information that aides in your diagnosis and treatment. The digital images produced allow your doctor immediate access to your x-ray images. Our experienced X-rays are good for viewing bones and MRIs provide great detail about soft tissues.
Our MRI is comfortable and very patient friendly. An MRI is often needed to gain a clearer understanding of hidden clues regarding possible torn knee ligaments and cartilage, torn rotator cuffs, herniated disks, hip and pelvic conditions and other situations. An MRI may take 30-60 minutes to perform. We use the latest in (1.5T) MRI technology from Philips Medical Systems. MRI images are instantaneously transmitted to Radiology Associates of Tallahassee for diagnosis by a Board Certified, Sub-Specialized Radiologist. In most cases, the images are read while the patient is still on the MRI table.
At TOC, there are x-ray units and an MRI unit conveniently located within the main facility so you can easily move from one unit to another for continued, uninterrupted care.
