Imaging Q&A

What is imaging?

Imaging procedures include X-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, CT scans, bone scans, and other diagnostic procedures in which a specialized machine emits painless energy into your body to develop images of organs and other internal tissues. 

AZ Health and Wellness Clinic offers numerous onsite imaging procedures as a convenient option for patients as part of its primary, preventive care, and sick visit services.

What are the benefits of imaging procedures?

The benefits of imaging at AZ Health and Wellness Clinic include the ability to diagnose medical problems that aren’t typically visible during physical exams. Furthermore, diagnostic tests allow Khaula to properly diagnose your condition and treat it effectively. 

Imaging tests are safe, painless, and often don’t take long to complete. Because AZ Health and Wellness Clinic offers onsite imaging, you don’t have to schedule a separate appointment at another facility. If you require complex imaging procedures not available at the practice, Khaula provides a referral.

Why might I need imaging tests?

Khaula may suggest diagnostic imaging procedures if you have signs of:

  • Pneumonia 
  • Other lung conditions
  • Fractures
  • Tumors
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Heart or blood vessel problems
  • Swallowed item
  • Gynecological problems
  • Cancer
  • Ongoing pain

She tailors diagnostic procedures and treatments based on your physical exam, medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and risk factors.

What should I expect during imaging procedures?

During an imaging procedure, you rest comfortably on an exam table or specialized machine. Your provider uses the machine or a handheld device to emit painless energy into your body. It’s important to remain still during an imaging test.

Sometimes, you receive contrast dye via a vein in your arm or liquid you drink to make images of specific body parts show up on images more clearly.

What happens after imaging tests?

There’s no downtime after undergoing imaging procedures at AZ Health and Wellness Clinic, so you can resume a typical routine immediately. If you receive a contrast medium, make sure to drink plenty of water.

When Khaula receives the results, she reviews them with you and determines (based on the results) if you’re a candidate for treatment, further diagnostic testing, or specialist referrals.
