Physician Survey Cards:
We value any feedback that you can give and we strive to constantly improve the experience of our patients and referring physicians. Please fill out our survey about your experience as a referring physician so that we can continue to provide the quality service at the most affordable prices.
- MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging – Our MRI equipment uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the body in slices. The test is performed to examine organs, tissues and the skeletal system in a non-invasive manner. During one MRI exam the number of images produced can range from just a couple up to hundreds. The MRI does not use any type of radiation, but it does use an extremely powerful magnet, so an extensive questionnaire will be filled out by the patient at the imaging center before their test to ensure they do not have any metal in their body. The test is then performed by our highly experienced imaging center technologists and the results are delivered to you so that you can speak with your patient about their medical situation.
- CT Scans or Computerized tomography – CT scans combine a series of X-ray views that have been taken from many different angles at the imaging center. When put together the images form cross-sectional images of bones and soft tissues. CT scans are often used to determine if there has been damage to a certain part of the body. These scans are widely used after traumatic experiences, for example an automobile accident or a significant fall. Having your patient get a CT scan will help you decide what plan of action is best for their particular situation.
- Ultrasound or sonography – An ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of structures in your body. During an ultrasound an imaging center tech will use a wand containing a sonar device on the patient?s body above the area they are examined. The technologist will take measurements of the structures they have been asked to identify and will print out the images for you to review.
- MRI with contrast – An MRI with contrast is exactly the same as a regular MRI, except one of the imaging center technologists will administer a contrast material, most commonly used is gadolinium, through an IV. The contrast is used to identify certain structures in the body more clearly and will provide you with more data to develop a plan of action for your patient’s needs.
- CT Scan with contrast – A CT scan with contrast is exactly the same as a normal CT except a contrast dye is delivered to the patient through an IV which has been placed by an imaging center technologist. The dye will help identify different structures so that you can have a clear idea of your patient’s needs and come up with the best solution for them.
- FibroScan – FibroScan is used to determine liver stiffness, and consequently, liver health. The technologist will place a wand against the skin and take 10 vibration samples, sending sound waves through the liver. The process is non-invasive, non-painful, and takes less than 15 minutes.
