X-Ray Facility

X-Ray Facility at Southern Arizona OrthopedicsYOUR IMAGING EXPERIENCE AT SAO

We provide state-of-the-art X-ray services at SAO in order to ensure accurate diagnosis and a timely visit.

Waiting for the results of an X-ray – or traveling to an outside facility to have one, can waste your time and delay diagnosis.

Our integrated digital x-ray system, which eliminates the delay in developing x-ray films, makes the images immediately available for viewing by your doctor.
