At Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, we are committed to providing you with efficient, cost-effective, and minimally-invasive treatment options. As part of that promise, we offer state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging at our on-site imaging center.
Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons and board-certified physiatrist are trained in using these advanced imaging technologies. Our goal is to get you back to optimal health as soon as possible. Because our diagnostic tools are on-site, our staff pre-certifies your imaging tests with your insurance company, and our physicians are able to view your images and immediately discuss your treatment options with you. The end result: more efficient diagnosis and treatment, which leads to a faster recovery.
Our imaging services include:
- X-Ray—a very effective diagnostic tool that produces pictures of the bones and tissues in the body. This study is effective in diagnosing many conditions including fractures (broken bones) and arthritis.
- Ultrasound—the use of high-frequency sound waves to generate images of the body’s organ systems. This is a useful study in patients who are not able to have an MRI. Ultrasound can aid in providing a quick and accurate diagnosis of soft tissue injuries and can aid in providing various types of injections.
- MRI—a non-invasive procedure that produces high-resolution images of the musculoskeletal system. Our MRI scanner is an open MRI which provides high quality images. The open MRI provides a more comfortable experience, in particular, for patients apprehensive about being confined to closed spaces.
