What to expect in Diagnostic Imaging

Your child may need 1 or all of these tests. Your child’s doctor or radiologist will explain each test to you. A radiologist is a doctor who has special training in capturing and analyzing images of areas inside the body. If the doctor orders an imaging test, the staff will give you details about how to prepare for the test. 

Please take your child to the Diagnostic Imaging waiting area 15 minutes before your check-in time. Check in with the patient representative at the desk as soon as you arrive. After you check in, do not leave the waiting area until your child has completed their test.

It is important to be on time. This helps us stay on schedule so all patients can have tests at their scheduled time. To keep things on track, we may have to cancel your appointment if you are late. If you cannot be at your planned visit, please call your primary clinic so they can give your test time to another patient.

If your child is in and inpatient room at the hospital, they may have some imaging tests in their patient room.
