PMR FAQS 

  • What types of diagnostic tests are commonly used for work injuries?
    The type of diagnostic tests used for work injuries depends on the nature and extent of the injury. Some common tests include X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans, and ultrasounds. These tests can help identify broken bones, soft tissue damage, and other injuries.
  • What types of diagnostic tests are commonly used for car accident injuries?
    Diagnostic tests used for car accident injuries are similar to those used for work injuries. X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, and ultrasounds are commonly used to diagnose injuries resulting from car accidents. In addition, some people may require specialized tests such as nerve conduction studies or electromyography (EMG) to evaluate nerve damage.
  • What types of diagnostic tests are commonly used for sports injuries?
    Sports injuries are typically diagnosed using a combination of physical exams and imaging tests. X-rays, MRI scans, and CT scans are commonly used to diagnose fractures, ligament tears, and other injuries. In addition, specialized tests such as arthroscopy may be used to examine joints and diagnose specific injuries.
  • How long does it take to get the results of diagnostic tests for injuries?
    The time it takes to get results from diagnostic tests varies depending on the type of test and the facility where it is performed. X-rays may produce immediate results, while MRI and CT scans may take several days to a week. In some cases, the results may need to be reviewed by a specialist or radiologist, which can also add to the turnaround time.
  • Can diagnostic tests be used to prevent future injuries?
    iagnostic tests can be used to identify pre-existing conditions or risk factors that may increase the likelihood of future injuries. For example, an MRI scan may reveal degenerative changes in a joint that could predispose a person to future injuries. This information can be used to develop preventative measures, such as physical therapy or changes to work or athletic activities, to reduce the risk of future injuries.
