Your Radiology Procedure

Information about your future procedure.

Scheduling your examination

  • You or your physician will call to schedule your appointment.
  • You will be asked a day, time and imaging facility preference.
  • You will then be asked several questions regarding the reason for your exam, in order to ensure that your procedure is scheduled properly.
  • Please have insurance, social security number and referral information available at this time.
  • The business day before your appointment, PinnacleHealth may contact you to pre-register.

Arrival for your appointment

On the day of testing you will report to the facility registration area, unless you have been instructed to do otherwise by the pre-registration representative. Registration is usually located near the lobby at each facility. You will need to provide your prescription, insurance card and sign any necessary documents. You will then be given directions to the appropriate testing area.

Procedure

Upon arrival in the Radiology Department, you will be greeted by the receptionist. The technologist will be notified of your arrival and will begin your procedure as soon as possible.

Results

Once your study has been completed you will be able to leave, unless your doctor has requested otherwise. Your results will usually be available to your physician within 24 hours. Your Physician will contact you regarding your results unless you have already scheduled a follow-up appointment or made other arrangements with their office.
