Imaging/Radiology (MRI & more)
Northern Arizona Healthcare (NAH) Imaging Services owns and operates the 3-T MRI located on the first floor of the Summit Center. Northern Arizona Orthopaedics utilizes this MRI to help provide diagnostic services for our patients. This Summit Center MRI is the only 3T MRI in Northern Arizona offering same-day appointments. A 3T MRI unit scans with higher detail, allowing for better examination of the injured area. The MRI office is conveniently located on the first floor of the Summit Center. To make an appointment with the NAH MRI, call their scheduling office at 928.213.4900.
MRI, which stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, is a key tool for doctors to look for and diagnose injuries that cannot be identified through X-ray or other means. Doctors recommend MRI scans for patients to look a little closer for joint degeneration, tumors, fractures and other damage or disease. It’s always a good idea to bring your MRI films in with you to your first appointment with an NAO doctor, if you have them.
X-Ray and Ultrasound
The NAO physicians also rely on our in-house X-ray and Ultrasound machines to evaluate injury or conditions. We have three X-ray machines at Northern Arizona Orthopaedics with one of them located in our walk-in Urgent Ortho clinic.
