Radiology Services at VSON
Radiology uses x-rays and other imaging technologies to create images of bones, muscles, and tissue inside the body to detect invisible problems to the naked eye. Imaging tests are an essential tool for orthopaedic physicians, allowing them to accurately diagnose a patient's symptoms and design a customized treatment plan for their injury.
At Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery, we provide the following radiology services in-house:
X-ray: A noninvasive diagnostic tool that uses very low radiation to visualize boney anatomy.
Edwards: Canon Omnera 500A fully automated DR system
Vail: Quantum manual system with Retro fitted Konica DR system
Frisco: Canon Omnera 500A fully automated DR system
MRI: A noninvasive diagnostic tool that uses a strong magnetic field and radiofrequency (RF) waves to produce images of the inside of your body. The scans are very safe, and there is no ionizing radiation exposure.
Edwards: 1.5T GE standard bore
Frisco: 1.5T Canon Wide bore and short bore
All VSON staff are very friendly and helpful. Love their in-house MRI and X-ray services! I was able to get all the answers I needed and a care plan in one easy appointment.
