Imaging Personal Injury Lien in Arizona
Numerous diagnostic tests are now available such as X-rays, MRI, CT Scans and Ultrasounds. Personal injury Doctors use a variety of technology to understand the patient’s injury, extent of damage to a particular area, and what needs to be done to immediately address the issue. An X-ray was the first available method and has since developed and is used to identify if there is damage to the bone. It is important to determine the extent of the injuries to ensure proper treatment.
Ultrasounds are effective to see the extent of damage and determine if it requires more in-depth investigation to spot the problem. The extent of the injury will determine whether invasive or non-invasive techniques may be recommended. If bleeding exists or if massive tissue damage has occurred, there may be a need for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan or computed tomography (CT) scan. In brain injury, these tests allow for quick assessment of the injury.
CT Scans provide very specific bone information to see how severe a fracture may be. This is also useful pre-surgery to determine the extent of the injury. CT Scans are methods that provide snapshot views of the brain, static images, but multiple images taken in quick succession or in different angles can be studied and compared to determine the extent of the injury.
Xenon CT and CT perfusion are also available tools Doctors use to determine the extent of the injury and what procedures need to be done. Magnetic resonance angiograpy (MRA) is used to assess vascular injury. MR technology is continually being investigated to provide invaluable data.
As a result of an accident, a medical provider may find it necessary to order several imaging studies for either diagnostic or preoperative purposes.
