One critical test can help physicians confirm the diagnosis

The number of flu cases reported are at a record high for South Carolina.   While many locals are stuck in the bed sick, physicians are finding that the flu is not the only virus going around.
 States Michael Garovich, M.D., “At Imaging Specialists, we have seen a spike in the number of patients coming in for chest x-rays.  Physicians are ordering this to determine if the patient does indeed have the flu or perhaps may have bronchitis or walking pneumonia. ”
  While the flu is a virus that is easily spread person to person, some are finding that they may feel like they have the flu but are testing negative.   Dr. Garovich states, “It is important to know what exactly is going on so that the patient can be treated accordingly.  A chest x-ray gives us a clear picture of inflammation in the lungs so that we can notify the treating physician.  Patients with a flu diagnosis can sometimes still have a clear chest x-ray, while those with bronchitis and walking pneumonia would not.”  Dr. Garovich continues,  “An abnormal chest x-ray, due to the flu, bronchitis or walking pneumonia, may guide the treating physicians to treat the patient effectively and more aggressively.”
  Patients can request to get a chest x-ray at Imaging Specialists, and it will cost considerably less than hospital imaging services.   For more information, log onto  To schedule an appointment, call 843-881-4020.
