OPA (Orthopedic Physician Associates-an operating division of Proliance Surgeons) is a full service orthopedic provider. They offer a comprehensive list of services to maximize the efficiency of your visit. They know your time is valuable; therefore, they have many services, including imaging, on-site for your convenience.
Imaging services offered through OPA:
X-rays are needed in most cases to perform an initial evaluation and also to measure your progress during the healing process.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):
This diagnostic test will be used to evaluate and verify your specific injury. These scans may be done with or without dye. Arthrograms are MRI studies with dye. If dye is required, you will receive an injection by a Radia Radiologist and then taken to our MRI Suite for your scan.
NOTE: If you have an arthrogram-MRI at OPA MRI, you may receive bills from multiple parties, including the Seattle Surgery Center and the radiologist who performs the injection procedure, in addition to the MRI scan bill.
