Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging Center: Walk-Ins Welcome

At Pomona Valley Health Centers, we harness the latest technologies to address and treat medical conditions early and successfully. X-ray imaging is one of the many diagnostic tools we employ to screen for medical abnormalities that can become serious if left unaddressed.

At our X-ray imaging center, you’ll have access to various diagnostic imaging services, including

  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computed tomography (CT)

We accept walk-ins for diagnostic x-ray imaging.

How to Prepare for X-Ray Imaging

X-rays are typically fast and painless and generally do not require any preparation. Nevertheless, it is best to wear comfortable clothing without jewelry before your appointment. You might be asked to wear a gown before the procedure.

What to Expect During Your X-Ray

A registered and certified technologist at the X-ray center will help you in the correct position so that the X-ray can capture the image of the targeted body part. It is important to remain completely still while the images are taken so that the technologist can achieve the most accurate possible view.

Depending upon the area being screened, you might be asked to hold your breath so that the image-capturing process is not disrupted.

After you have been appropriately positioned, the technologist will go into another room to capture the image. Typically, multiple images are taken.

Understanding X-Rays: What is X-Ray Imaging?

An X-ray, a radiograph, is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that generates images of the body’s internal structures. X-rays are particularly effective at capturing dense tissue and bone. Radiography utilizes minute quantities of ionizing radiation to visualize the anatomy and detect abnormalities, injuries, infections, musculoskeletal disorders, and other medical anomalies.

While other diagnostic imaging tools provide higher-resolution images, X-ray images are the most accessible imaging tool for most. They are often performed before other imaging solutions like MRI or CT scans.

Digital radiography is the most advanced X-ray technology, providing faster, higher-quality images than traditional X-rays. While the standard X-ray could take approximately 15 minutes to generate images, digital radiology allows physicians to view the images on a computer screen instantly, effectively reducing diagnostic delays and allowing clinicians to administer treatment quickly.

The speed and efficiency of digital radiography are particularly beneficial during medical emergencies. X-ray imaging is widely used for the following:

  • Identifying broken bones
  • Identifying Joint dislocations
  • Identifying foreign objects in soft tissues
  • Identifying kidney stones or gallstones
  • Identifying intestinal perforations
  • Identifying blockages in the intestines.

Digital X-ray imaging offers the following benefits:

  • Technicians can make exposure adjustments in real time, improving detail and clarity
  • Microscopic fractures and tears can be visualized more easily
  • Images are digitally stored, allowing other medical specialists to access them instantly
  • Digital radiology generates between 80 and 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays.
