Radiology Q&A

What is radiology?

Radiology at Montgomery Family Care refers to imaging technology. This includes on-site X-rays and ultrasound to diagnose illnesses, injuries, and diseases. This innovative technology uses energy beams to develop images of structures inside your body and determine the root causes of new or unusual symptoms.


What is radiology used for?

The Montgomery Family Care team will, in most cases, recommend that you undergo radiology procedures if you’re at risk or have symptoms of:

  • Fractures
  • Other injuries
  • Pneumonia
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Infections
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) problems
  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart or blood vessel problems
  • Gynecological problems in women
  • Prostate problems in men
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Other diseases
  • Urinary tract problems

To determine if you need the radiology services at Montgomery Family Care, your specialist discusses your symptoms and medical history.

They check your vital signs and complete a physical exam. They could suggest that you undergo blood or urine tests or other diagnostic tests to find the root cause of your symptoms.

What should I expect during radiology procedures?

On-site X-rays and ultrasounds at Montgomery Family Care are painless, often quick, and noninvasive procedures. In some cases, you receive a contrast medium, a dye your provider administers via injections or enemas, to make structures within your body stand out more on the images.

While you sit or lie down, your radiologist uses a machine that emits X-ray beams or ultrasound waves into your body at targeted areas to develop detailed images.

What happens after radiology procedures?

After you complete on-site radiology procedures at Montgomery Family Care, your specialist reviews the results with you. They let you know if you have a health condition that needs treatment.

Treatment can include rest and fluids, bracing or casting, medications, injections, or inhalers, as well as further diagnostic testing, physical therapy, and/or surgery.

If you received a contrast medium before an imaging procedure, make sure to drink plenty of water. There’s no downtime after radiology procedures, so you can resume your daily routine immediately.
