Understanding Your Radiology Exam

Did your doctor order an imaging exam? Get basic explanations of imaging tests.

So many patients do not get a complete explanation of medical procedures ordered by their physician. Physicians don’t always have a lot of time to explain what to expect when an exam is ordered. Having knowledge of your procedure before having it done will lessen your anxiety surrounding the procedure itself.
