Running diagnostics and scans are essential for many to get the clear-cut diagnosis that they have been waiting for. Complicated cases can leave patients at their wit’s end, wanting to know exactly what is causing their pain and what can be done to resolve the issue. Pain can radiate around the body, detailed X-rays accurately identify the source as well as clarifying the severity of the infliction. An example is someone who has taken a serious fall and landed on their elbow.

 

 It is clear that their elbow is dislocated but they must get scanned to check if there are any fractures to the bone as well as assessing if there is any excessive muscular damage. This helps plot the best course of action for our doctors as it provides them with all factors at play, making sure you heal correctly and as healthily as possible. As well as general x-rays. There are multiple variants that are particularly effective at diagnosing, monitoring and locating particular issues.

Our ultrasound scans are used for guided injections, using the latest technology for pinpoint accuracy for:

CT Scan

A CT scan (Computed Tomography) uses a narrow x-ray beam that circles a particular area multiple times to create a cross-sectional image. In some cases, we use a dye during the process that is pumped through the body to highlight certain structures. Useful to identify:

MRI Scan

An MRI scan (magnetic resonance imaging) generates a strong magnetic field, whilst using radio waves to generate comprehensive internal images of the body. This procedure places you inside a tunnel which can be claustrophobic for some, but we take measures to make the experience as relaxing as possible. It generates detailed 3D images. Used to identify:

Blood Tests

As part of your examination, your orthopaedist may order a variety of blood tests. They are used to aid diagnosis and screen for hundreds of medical conditions. Some conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, may be identified by the presence of a specific substance in your blood. Usually, a blood test is a simple matter that involves withdrawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The doctors at Pinnacle will perform blood tests as indicated to aid diagnosis such as:
