The state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging equipment used at AICA Ortho & Spine helps your doctors make a detailed assessment of your injuries. We use X-ray, MRI, and CT scans to establish the baseline for your personalized treatment plan, which is based on the extent and location of your injuries.
We start with X-rays to identify injuries sustained to bones or joints, as well as injuries that need urgent attention.
MRIs allow us to go deeper than the initial X-ray, providing a 3D view of your body’s soft tissue structures. Soft tissue damage can’t be detected in an X-ray, so an MRI ensures all injuries are diagnosed and treated.
A CT scan can diagnose hard-to-find injuries, such as hairline fractures.
Fluoroscopy imaging shows a continuous X-ray image of the body in real time, which helps your doctor verify that your bones are in their proper positions. We can also use fluoroscopy while your body is in motion to determine if your joints are functioning properly.
Here at AICA Lithia Springs, we use some of the most advanced imaging equipment to diagnose you properly. Check out some of our services below.
This type of imaging is noninvasive and uses no radiation, but it can detect problems in all of your soft tissue, including your muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, spinal discs, blood vessels, organs, and more. MRIs can help us find cancer, brain injuries, MS, bone infections, joint damage, heart disease, and more.LEARN MORE
This type of imaging allows us to view the inside of the body in 3D, including your bones, organs, and other tissues. It takes multiple X-Ray images from a variety of angles to create cross-sectional images, allowing us to see more in-depth than a standard X-Ray. CT Scans can help detect hairline fractures, heart disease, blood clots, cancer, tumors, infections, and more.LEARN MORE
Our digital X-Ray capabilities allow us to see an X-Ray image immediately after it’s been taken, allowing us to more quickly and effectively diagnose breaks and other bone concerns. X-Rays can also give doctors insight into arthritis, dislocated joints, and other causes of bone or joint pain. X-Rays are also commonly used to diagnose lung problems like pneumonia and tuberculosis.LEARN MORE
This imaging technology is like a continuous X-Ray. It can be used to diagnose a number of ailments and injuries, but it can also be used during a medical procedure in which extreme precision and safety are absolutely vital. Fluoroscopy can help doctors diagnose pain during movement, and it can assist doctors in cardiac catheter insertion, among other things.LEARN MORE
