Your comfort is our concern. From the moment you arrive at our center, you’ll experience a refreshing attention to your comfort and care. We want your visit with us to be as pleasant as possible. Here is some basic information to help you understand what to expect when you are with us.
 
If possible, wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. You will be greeted by our friendly front office staff, who will check you in and answer any initial questions you may have about your exam. After your registration is complete, you may have a seat in our front lobby, where one of our technologists will come to escort you to your procedure. He or she will be with you throughout your procedure.

Depending upon your procedure, you may be asked to change into medical scrubs, especially if your clothing contains metals that interfere with the imaging process. No metal objects are allowed in the exam room. You are asked to leave behind most jewelry, body-piercing jewelry, hairpins, glasses, non-permanent dentures and credit cards. Secured lockers are provided for your personal items.

Next you will be escorted to the imaging suite where your technologist will explain the details of your procedure and give you an opportunity to ask questions. Once you are positioned onto the cushioned scanning table, your technologist will move to an adjoining room to perform the scan and monitor the process through a large window. He or she will be in constant contact with you via a microphone, letting you know what to expect and how long it will take.

For MRI and CT, multiple film sequences are taken while you lie still and relaxed on the scanning table. It is important to lie completely still during a sequence, since body movements affect the clarity of the image. If at any time during your exam you experience discomfort or concern, please inform your technologist. Blankets and pillows are provided upon request, as scanning rooms are kept at cool temperatures to accommodate required equipment specifications. You may feel air moved by fans and hear operational noises, which are normal.

Diagnostic imaging procedures can vary in length. MRI ordinarily takes 20 – 35 minutes to complete, though MRI of the breasts requires 45 – 60 minutes. CT normally takes 10 – 30 minutes and ultrasound can range from 30 – 60 minutes depending upon the exam.

Once the exam is complete our radiologists will interpret your images and prepare a detailed report that is provided to your doctor, usually within 24 hours. Your doctor will contact you to discuss the results.

For specific procedural information and preparation instructions for your particular exam, select from the following:
High-Field MRI
64-Slice CT
Ultrasound
X-Ray
