Preparations

MRI

There are no special preparations needed for an MRI. The exam lasts 30 to 60 minutes depending on the body part being scanned and is usually divided into 3 to 4 imaging segments. In some instances, a contrast agent (gadolinium) will be administered if requested by the referring physician. The patient may eat, drink, and take his/her medication prior to the exam. Patients are required to leave all coins, jewelry, keys, credit cards, hair pins, glasses, hearing aids, removable dental plates and any other metallic objects in a secured area. Absolutely NO MRI for patients with coclear implants, cardiac pacemakers or Brain Clips. If you have a history as a metal worker, you must be screened with an X-ray prior to your MRI. Please bring any prior films and reports and make them available to the radiologist for comparison and diagnosis.

CT-Scan

For a CT of the abdomen, pelvis and contrast studies require the patient not to eat 6 hours prior to the exam. The patient may be required to pick up an oral contrast agent two days prior to the scan. For all CT scans with intravenous contrast studies, patients over 40 years of age, patients currently receiving chemotherapy and patients with a history of nephrectomy must have bloodwork done with BUN and Creatinine levels tested. Most studies take about 10 to 15 minutes.

Ultrasound

For a Pelvic or Transvaginal Ultrasound, drink and hold in 32 ounces of water one hour before the appointment. For an Abdominal Ultrasound, do not eat or drink anything for 8 hours prior to the appointment. For Obstetrics or Bladder Ultrasounds, drink and hold 24 ounces of water one hour prior to the appointment. There are no specific preparation instructions for Breast, Renal, Carotid, Testicular, Thyroid, and Doppler exams.

Mammogram

Schedule your appointment time for shortly after menses. Please do not use any powders, cream or deodorant under you arm or around the breast area prior to your exam. Wear a comfortable two-piece
outfit. If possible, obtain and make available to the radiologist any prior mammogram studies. If you cannot obtain your previous mammograms or this is your first mammography, you must sign a waiver stating that you will allow your films to be read without comparison to any previous films.

DEXA Scan

If a patient is on calcium supplements, they cannot take calcium the day of the test.

After your exam is completed, a radiologist who specializes in analyzing images of the specific area of the body you had examined will prepare a diagnostic report to share with your referring physician.

Quick Reports/Results: We understand that both patients and physicians are anxious to obtain the results of scheduled diagnostic procedures and that's why we normally deliver our reports for most procedures within 48 hours. Sat reports are always available for emergency cases.

Insurance information

While we have made every attempt to associate Atrium Diagnostic Imaging with all possible payors, there are times when we are not able to contract with some. As a good "rule of thumb," always verify coverage for the prescribed scan with your insurance carrier before arriving at Atrium Diagnostic Imaging. We, the provider of a service, want to ensure the lowest possible out-of-pocket costs for you, the patient. Should your insurance for some reason not cover the procedure with Atrium Diagnostic Imaging, maybe we can find a suitable and appropriate alternative. As with any service provided under insurance coverage, you, the patient, are ultimately responsible for any and all costs not covered by your insurance carrier.

Many insurance plans require their members to obtain pre-authorization for some diagnostic tests. Although we process insurance authorizations at Atrium Diagnostic Imaging, please contact your plan prior to scheduling your exam to verify plan coverage and any pre-authorization requirements.
