Personal Injury

When a picture could be worth a thousand words

Properly displayed medical images have become an essential element for the successful outcome of cases involving personal injury and workers’ compensation. As an increasing number of insurance providers and courts are asking for medical images as evidence, attorneys have benefitted from referring their clients (patients) to an imaging service provider having experience in this field.

Diagnostic imaging services such as MRI, X-ray, and other key imaging modalities, can provide high-quality, case-making images that can turn ordinary evidence into a compelling view and make a great difference with a non-medical-expert judge and jury.

Elite Radiology of Georgia has the expertise and clinical framework to deal with personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.  Our team of Board Certified radiologists, trained technologists, multilingual medical staff, and case managers dedicated to coordinating all the details can help cases be conducted and resolved more smoothly.

The importance of diagnostic imaging after an accident or injury

After someone experiences an injury, their internal physical trauma may not always be immediately felt. In fact, injuries to the brain, back, or skull, and those caused by abrupt jerks and shocks including whiplash are not always evident right away. If left untreated, these injuries may lead to severe complications that could have long-term repercussions and lower a person’s quality of life.

It is therefore important to undergo diagnostic imaging soon after a personal injury in order to avoid any medical issues. MRI’s, CT Scans, and X-rays are some of the types of imaging techniques used in these cases.  Our non-invasive imaging techniques can help physicians accurately detect and diagnose a patient’s internal injuries without the need for complicated and invasive procedures like exploratory surgery.

During the scan, attention is given to the detection of injuries to the internal organs and tissues. The brain can also be imaged and assessed for signs of damage. The results of these exams are then shared with a medical professional who can review the images and look for any indications of underlying physical trauma.

If your personal injury is part of a legal dispute, the diagnostic images we provide are one of the key requirements to successfully file your insurance and court case claims as they can demonstrate evidence of any injuries that were sustained.
