How an urgent care X-ray makes all the difference
You may wonder whether X-ray machines are available at your local urgent care. It's a valid question, especially if you’re dealing with an acute illness or a possible broken bone. After all, you want to know whether you’ll need additional medical attention. So, do urgent cares have X-rays?
Do urgent cares have X-rays?
Yes, most urgent care centers have X-ray machines available on-site. X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool to help doctors quickly identify injuries, including bone fractures and joint dislocations. X-rays can also help diagnose acute illnesses, such as pneumonia and detect foreign objects in the body.
In addition, having an X-ray machine in-house can reduce the time and cost of sending patients to a separate imaging center for further testing.
Most CityMD urgent care locations have on-site X-ray machines available. Our team of medical professionals is equipped to provide comprehensive care, including X-rays, for a wide range of medical concerns.

What can a chest X-ray diagnose?
A chest X-ray is another common imaging test that can help diagnose various illnesses and injuries. Many CityMDs have chest X-rays available on site. Here are some of the things that a chest X-ray can detect.
- Lung infections like pneumonia, bronchitis, and tuberculosis.
- Heart problems such as abnormalities or fluid buildup in the surrounding tissues.
- Lung cancer or other abnormal growths in the lungs.
- Injuries such as identifying broken ribs or other injuries to the bones and tissues in the chest area.
- Other conditions like emphysema, asthma, and pulmonary fibrosis. While a chest X-ray can provide valuable information, it is not always conclusive. Depending on the X-ray results, additional testing or imaging may be necessary to confirm a diagnosis.
