Bluestone Diagnostic Imaging and Pain Management

Many Dementia Patients Need Pain Management. Is Your Practice Prepared?

Nearly 6 million Americans have dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or some other form of cognitive impairment that affects their memory. Many dementia patients experience pain, and among the medical community, awareness of the need for effective pain management is growing.

The Role of Diagnostic Imaging in Pain Management

The challenge of providing pain management to a patient with dementia lies in the fact that they often cannot report on their own condition reliably. It’s not unusual for a patient to deny they’re experiencing any pain, even though caretakers, health care workers, and other people can observe that they’re acting as if they are in pain.  Diagnostic imaging is a non-invasive way for clinicians to investigate what’s going on with a patient, even if they can’t disclose this information for themselves.

Easy Access to Diagnostic Testing Helps Patients & Caregivers

Many dementia patients need a significant amount of assistance to navigate the health care system. It’s also not uncommon for these patients to grow impatient with multiple appointments and lengthy wait times. Being able to provide diagnostic imaging services within your practice eliminates both issues, and can make life easier for patients and their caregivers. For this reason, many pain management clinics and geriatric medicine specialists take steps to have the most common diagnostic imaging equipment, including c-arms, mini c-arms, and portable x-ray machines in their facility.

If you’re the practice administrator for a pain management clinic, you know how important it is to make the most of your budget.
