Emergency rooms can be a daunting place to be. They are typically crammed full of people who are all anxious to see a doctor, and because they prioritize care based on who has the greater need, you could be stuck waiting for hours before you receive treatment. But when you or a loved one sustains a fracture, it may be the first place you think to seek care. Duke City Urgent Care is proud to offer onsite x-ray services to our patients. Our 3 locations in Albuquerque and Los Lunas are designed to minimize your wait so that you can receive the diagnosis and treatment you need quickly and return to your daily life as soon as possible.
There can be a lot of uncertainty when it comes to self-diagnosing and injury. Without looking inside your body, it may be difficult, or even impossible, to know what is actually going on. While you may think you’ve only sprained a tendon, your injury can sometimes be more serious. If you have pain that does not dissipate, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible with a doctor who can properly diagnose your injury. At Duke City Urgent Care, we are available 7 days a week to diagnose and treat non-life-threatening injuries. Our experienced x-ray technologists and sonographersare able to take images onsite so your doctor can assess you properly.
X-rays are a non-invasive and painless way to reveal the interior structure of your body. X-rays produce two-dimensional images of your bones using electromagnetic radiation. While the term “radiation” may sound scary, the doses used when you undergo an x-ray procedure are extremely minimal, and the low level of radiation contact required is smaller than the annual dose most people are exposed to from completely natural sources over the course of a year. Using x-rays, your doctor can determine whether a bone has been fractured, and to what extent. X-rays are proven to be a safe and effective diagnostic tool and Duke City Urgent Care is proud to offer them for our patients in Albuquerque and Los Lunas.
Ultrasound is also offered on site at Duke City Urgent Care, and available to our patients seven days a week. Ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound to capture live images from inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision. Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation. Our trained and certified sonographers perform complete outpatient exams within our office under the direction of one of our medical providers. Then a radiologist or your doctor will interpret the ultrasound images. This process allows your doctor to make informed decisions about your specific treatment plan.
If you or a loved one has sustained a non-life-threatening injury or illness, trust the highly trained professionals at Duke City Urgent Care. Our onsite x-ray services can help to expedite your diagnosis, allowing you to begin treatment quickly. Our walk-in clinic is open 7 days a week, and an appointment is never required in order for you to see a doctor.
