Radiology

Here at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine we offer a variety of radiological procedures and testing in office. This service allows for quicker diagnosis, treatment, and recovery for our patients. 

Arthrogram

a medical imaging technique that allows imaging of a joint after injection of contrast material into the joint. Injection of the contrast material better allows for visualization of soft tissues around and within the joint (like tendons, cartilage, and ligaments). Arthrography may be done using X-ray imaging known as fluoroscopy, but CT scan and MRI arthrography are also performed.

C-Arm

C-Arm is a medical imaging device that is based on X-ray technology and can be used flexibly in various ORs within a clinic. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-ray source and X-ray detector to one another.

U-Arm

With the cross arm curved into a “U” shape, these versatile X-ray systems are designed to take up less space and provide a wide range of imaging possibilities.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound machine makes images so that organs inside the body can be examined. The machine sends out high-frequency sound waves, which reflect off body structures. A computer receives the waves and uses them to create a picture.

X-Ray

An X-ray is a simple procedure performed to provide a two-dimensional picture of your body to use as a screening tool to evaluate for causes of many common disorders, such as bone breaks, joint and spine injuries or conditions, and arthritis or osteoporosis.
