What to Expect
Your physician may order an imaging test to help diagnose or treat your condition. In the days leading up to your imaging appointment, you may be required to follow specific instructions such as fasting or avoiding medications. Please talk to your physician or nurse to find out how to prepare for your test.
On the day of your imaging appointment, you will meet with a technologist who specializes in your test. He or she will guide you through the test ensuring that your questions are answered and you are as comfortable as possible.
Following your test, your images will be read by a radiologist with specialized training. The radiologist will consult with your physician and we will follow up with you to discuss next steps.
At Clements University Hospital, medical research is an important part of our mission. We frequently conduct clinical trials that involve imaging services to improve our diagnosis and treatment abilities and to help further medical knowledge overall.
