Urgent care is a healthcare delivery model in which patients with acute illnesses or injuries are seen quickly by a provider. The provider may be a primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. Urgent care centers are typically staffed with a mix of primary care providers and specialists. These types of facilities also commonly provide laboratory services, such as X-rays. PrimeHealth Urgent Care in Bradenton, FL, offers same-day X-ray appointments, so you can have your results sooner, and take action quicker.

What happens if I need an X-ray at PrimeHealth Urgent Care?


If you need an X-ray in the Bradenton, FL area, come to PrimeHealth Urgent Care. Our urgent care clinic can see you without an appointment, so you can walk in and receive an X-ray the same day! You will be greeted by our front desk, where they will confirm your condition and information. Then you will have a short wait before seeing our X-ray specialist. Our wait times vary but are consistently shorter when compared to the wait times at a hospital for the same service. Our urgent care is open Monday to Sunday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (hours subject to change).

How can I prepare for an X-ray?


An X-ray is a straightforward diagnostic exam—there are no special preparations required, unless you are pregnant or may be pregnant, then you should consult your physician beforehand. Please remember to bring your X-ray referral form, if you have one, and any pertinent medical documents and insurance policies.

What can I expect during my X-ray appointment?


The actual process of getting an X-ray usually takes an average of about 15 minutes, though some situations that require extensive imaging may take longer. In addition to this, the total X-ray scanning time depends on the size and shape of the area being scanned. For example, a leg or arm X-ray is often a lot simpler than a chest X-ray, as the image will only be clear when X-raying the chest when the patient is not breathing, so it may need to be redone a few times for clarity.
 
After entering the exam room, the X-ray technician will position you on the exam table, and give you further instructions. You will have the opportunity to ask the X-ray technician questions; feel free to write down a few questions beforehand and bring them to the appointment so you don’t forget to ask something important.

How long does it take for X-ray results at PrimeHealth Urgent Care in Bradenton, FL?


There are several steps involved in x-ray diagnostics, including processing, analysis, and follow-up. In complex situations or if complications should arise, a specialist may be consulted. This may increase the time it takes to receive the results by a few days or weeks. Patient volume and the number of x-ray results being processed can also have a significant impact on result return time.

Processing — It typically takes less than 10 minutes to process an X-ray; however, the physical X-ray image is processed on modern digital equipment in an instant. These digital copies can be uploaded and transferred to different medical professionals and specialists within minutes.

Analysis — The time it takes to analyze X-rays depends on the complexity of the results and the doctor’s workload. For example, it may require less time to assess a clean break or simple fracture in a femur than it would assess multiple fractures in a hand. Sometimes specialists are called in to view the X-rays; this can also result in longer wait times. However, this extra time is important because it allows the attention to detail that is needed to address complex situations.

Follow-Up — The follow-up period is when the doctor will review the results with the patient; it can take anywhere from a few minutes to several weeks to receive results, depending on the aforementioned factors.
