It’s necessary for you to arrive early in order to complete or review your paperwork and prepare you for your examination. Our technologists need to keep to a strict schedule in order to accommodate the many patients we see everyday.
It is extremely important to bring any previous studies. The radiologist needs to see how your current films compare with old ones. This can often eliminate the need for further studies and also helps to identify any subtle changes that may have occurred since your last examination. Remember the more information your Radiologist has the better!
A radiologist is a medical doctor specially trained to interpret medical imaging. Sometimes your doctor will request to see your x-rays in addition to having the radiologist interpret them. In this case, you can take your films with you after the radiologist has read them.
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes. However, our technologist will provide you with a gown to change into.
The technologists are not qualified to read your images. When they check them, it is to make sure the quality is good enough for the radiologist to interpret them.
As a rule, no. However, please be sure to notify our technologist of any prior surgeries before your exam.
