Answers to Frequently Asked Imaging Questions

How fast can I get an appointment?

For most services, next-day or same-day appointments are available.

How should I prepare for my diagnostic imaging test?

You will be given specific instructions prior to your test. Most tests and scans do not require you to fast or refrain from drinking fluids. Depending on the area of your body being tested, you may be asked to remove jewelry, glasses, hairpins, or other items that may interfere with results. We also suggest wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing with no zippers or metal clasps.

What if I am unsure about possible metal in my body?

A screening X-ray can be taken before your imaging procedure, so a radiologist can determine whether it could be detrimental to your health.

Can my family doctor also receive the results?

Yes. You may request copies of the signed radiologist report be sent to additional doctors as well as the ordering physician.

How long does diagnostic testing take, and when can I get my results?

The length of the exam depends on a variety of factors, including diagnosis, preparation, and contrast administration as needed. Your provider will discuss everything you should expect prior to beginning your diagnostic scan. A signed radiologist report will be sent to your ordering doctor in 24 to 48 hours, and then your physician will go over the results with you.

Do CT scans hurt?

The CT scan itself will cause you no pain. However, you may have some discomfort from lying on the table in the position needed, during the processes of starting the IV, and/or during contrast administration. If at any time something bothers you, be sure to tell the CT staff, and they will help make you as comfortable as possible while still obtaining a successful scan.

I’m afraid of small, enclosed spaces. What options do I have if my doctor orders an MRI?

Talk to your ordering physician about your claustrophobia or concerns with MRIs. Your doctor may be able to prescribe medicine to help ease anxiety.

I have a pacemaker. Can I have an MRI?

Please contact the MRI Department with the make and model of your pacemaker, so our staff can clear your device before your appointment.

Can I have an MRI if I am pregnant?

To date, there is no medical documentation to suspect harmful effects to a fetus. However, this procedure should still be discussed with your doctor to make sure the benefits of testing will outweigh any possible risk to you or your baby.
