Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of radiology in diagnosing rheumatoid conditions?

Benefits of undergoing an X-ray include:

  • Increased accuracy in diagnosing and monitoring the progression of inflammatory conditions
  • Allows doctors to detect any abnormalities that cannot be seen with physical exams
  • Quicker diagnosis and treatment plan, since initial results can often be available within minutes rather than days or weeks
  • Low risk procedure with minimal side effects compared to other diagnostic tests

If I’m diagnosed with a rheumatoid or autoimmune condition, how often should I consult with my doctor?

Depending on the severity of your rheumatoid condition, it is recommended to have regular check-ups with your doctor. Generally, these should be scheduled every 1-3 months, but this recommendation may differ depending on the doctor's assessment of individual cases.

In addition, if you notice any changes in your symptoms between check-ups, it is always best to contact your doctor immediately for further evaluation.
