When you have an x-ray at Edina
Family Physicians 2 locations, your studies are completed with a
computerized radiology system. We offer the convenience of
having your x-rays completed on location as opposed to referring
you to an outside hospital or radiology provider.
Computerized radiology means there is no wait time for your
films to be developed. The medical assistant taking your film
can see immediate results on the quality of the picture.
Once your study has been prepared it is available, while you are
in the office, for your physician to look at on our viewing room
workstation. In many cases, the physician will show you the
digital x-ray and explain the results immediately.
At the same time, your x-ray is immediately available to our
certified radiologist. He is able to access your digital films,
read them, and give the results to your physician, often the
same day the study was taken.
X-rays done at Edina Family Physicians are kept in permanent
storage as a part of your medical record for 7 years. This
includes all x-rays, MRI, CT, mammogram, and ultrasound studies.
We also have the capability to copy your x-ray to a CD should
you need to take your films to a specialist for additional
