Frequently Asked Questions
My doctor scheduled me for an exam at Diagnostic Radiology Institute. What should I expect upon my arrival?
First – we have a check-in time and a scan time. We ask that patients arrive 15-30 minutes prior to their actual scan or x-ray. When you arrive the receptionist will greet you. We will make a copy of your insurance card and driver’s license. If you are a work comp patient we will only ask for your driver’s license. You will be given some paper work to fill out with information pertaining to your demographics, medical history, and a consent form. If your doctor gave you prior studies, films, or x-rays, we will collect them for our radiologist to review. You will be directed to a waiting room where you will be screened and go over your medical history. If you are having an MRI, you will be asked about certain metals and you may have to remove them. Everything will be locked in a private room and you will take the key with you.
Why would I need a contrast?
Contrast (gadolinium) is used for certain studies. For example: If you have had surgery on your spine, it is used to differentiate between a new injury and scar tissue. If the diagnosis is MS; the contrast is used to highlight the possibility of plaques. It also highlights tumors. Contrast is a clear solution that is injected into your veins. It is injected partway through the study and then some sequences are performed again.
Our doctor and nurses are on site for contrast studies.
What if I want more than one area scanned?
An MRI is specific to the area your physician orders. We have to go by what the order says. If it says left shoulder but both of your shoulders hurt, we cannot add the right shoulder. The same with your spine – If the order says lumbar; we will scan your low back area and that is all.
If you think you need something else scanned please discuss that with your physician prior to your appointment. If another scan is added, we need to be notified. You are given a 45-minute time slot for each scan.
Do you accept my insurance?
What about payment?
Can I get a copy of my exam?
How do I get my exam results?
Your exam will be interpreted by one of our board-certified radiologists. It will be transcribed and finalized. It will then be sent to your referring physician who will go over the results with you.
You will be given a CD with your MRI images on it – This is your permanent medical record to keep. We can share your images and results (Following all HIPPA Requirements) via the NUANCE CLOUD, as long as the requesting doctor or hospital uses the same cloud system.
We can always provide you a copy of your written results after your consultation with your physician is completed.
