Dr. Burns has full x-ray capabilities and ultrasound in her office, making it easy to evaluate your bone and joint problems during your office visit. When Dr. Burns orders advanced imaging such as MRI or CT scan, you can be sure her goal is to obtain detailed images of your problem area to more accurately diagnose your orthopedic issue or to create a detailed plan for surgery.
SSM Imaging integrates seamlessly into your electronic medical record, making it easy for Dr. Burns and her staff to access images for office visits or surgery. The reports are also quickly available via MyChart. Depending on cost or insurance requirements, you may also obtain your advanced imaging from another facility such as Metro Imaging.
Dr. Burns will often use Blueprint or Signature software to plan for surgery. This allows for a computer simulation of your shoulder replacement prior to surgery, and helps her to best understand what sizing and positioning will work best to give you the best shoulder replacement possible.
