X-rays (radiographs) are the most common and widely available diagnostic imaging technique. Depending on the injury, several X-rays from different angles may be needed. Your X-ray session will probably take 10 to 15 minutes; no specific preparations are required.  Murphy Wainer is equipped with state of the art X-ray equipment and facilities. Our offices have the capability to send your X-ray electronically (and privately) to your doctor or to those physicians whom might assist your doctor in their interpretation. Be assured that you confidentiality is maintained at all times.  If you have any questions about x-rays, please discuss them with your doctor. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced, state of the art method, which produces very clear pictures, or images, of the human body without the use of X-rays. The MRI exam is probably one of the easiest and most comfortable exams you may experience. You will be asked to lie down on a cushioned table while the average MR scan takes 5-15 minutes, with a complete exam running 20-60 minutes.  Murphy Wainer can easily refer you to our MRI facilities for quicker and convenient access if your doctor recommends this valuable diagnostic tool.  If you have any questions regarding the MRI exam, please be sure to discuss them with your doctor. Arthrography is often used to help diagnose the cause of unexplained joint pain. A contrast iodine solution is injected into the joint area to help highlight the joint structures, such as the ligaments, cartilage, tendons and joint capsule. Several standard X-rays of the joint are taken, using a fluoroscope, a special piece of X-ray equipment that immediately shows the image. You may be asked to fast prior to the exam.  Murphy Wainer can provide this diagnostic service as recommended by your attending physician. Your doctor can answer any questions you may have about your arthography. Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic tool that records and analyzes the electrical activity in your muscles. It is used to learn more about the functioning of nerves in the arms and legs. During an EMG, small, thin needles are placed in the muscle to record the electrical activity. When the needles are inserted, you may feel some pain and discomfort. On the day of the test, do not put any lotions or creams on the area to be tested and do not wear any jewelry. Usually, you can get the results immediately after the test.  Murphy Wainer has board certified physisicans who are Interventional Specialists trained in the administration and interpretation of these studies. Nerve conduction studies are often done along with an electromyogram to determine if a nerve is functioning normally. The doctor conducting the test will tape wires (electrodes) to the skin in various places along the nerve pathway. Then the doctor stimulates the nerve with an electric current.  It is not usually painful and most people are comfortable during the testing procedure.  Murphy Wainer has Board Certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physicians who are trained in the administration and interpretation of these studies.  Talk to your doctor if you have questions about the nerve conduction study.
