X-Rays

Urgent Care X-Rays Diagnose Conditions

An x-ray takes a black and white picture of the inside of your body and can detect broken bones, tumors, and more. At Bayside Urgent Care Center, we use x-rays to help us identify and diagnose many conditions.

If you suspect a fracture (the cracking or breaking of a bone) or other non-life-threatening health problems, our medical team is ready to help.

Conveniently located in Clearwater, Florida, from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday and from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. New patients are always welcome, and appointments are not necessary.  


When Are X-Rays Used?

X-rays are most commonly used to confirm if a bone has fractured. You may also receive an x-ray if we expect:

● Joint dislocations

● Kidney stones

● Pneumonia

● Ingestion of a foreign object

● Wounds with a foreign body

● Bowel obstructions

● Other stomach conditions

Keep in mind that not every type of injury will show up on x-rays. For example, torn tendons are better diagnosed with an MRI or ultrasound.


What Can You X-Ray?

We use x-rays to diagnose a wide range of injuries and complaints in the following areas:

● Chest and lungs (coughs, pneumonia, bronchitis)

● Upper extremities (fingers, hands, wrists, forearms)

● Lower extremities (toes, feet, ankles, legs)

● Hip and pelvis

● Spine

● Skull


What Happens During X-Rays?

If you are experiencing pain from an injury, getting into position for the procedure may be uncomfortable; however, the actual x-ray doesn’t hurt.

If you have jewelry around the site to be x-rayed, we will ask you to remove it. Before taking the image, we will provide you with a lead apron to protect you from radiation. Then, we will help you position your body so we can get the most accurate image.


What To Bring When Your Visit

To help us treat you more effectively, please be prepared to tell us about any medications you take (including vitamins and supplements), past illnesses and surgeries, and your primary care doctor’s phone number and address so we can transfer records, if necessary.


Does Bayside Urgent Care Accept Insurance?

Yes. We accept Medicare and most major insurance carriers. If you don’t have insurance or prefer to pay out-of-pocket, our services are reasonably priced and less expensive than an ER visit.
