When it comes to your healthcare, you likely have a good number of options where your digital imaging providers are concerned. It’s important to know whether or not you have found the right facility to get the care you need and what better way to know whether or not this is the case than by asking the right questions? When you have the answers to these questions, you can make an informed decision about which diagnostic imaging provider will be the best choice for you. Regardless of the imaging procedure you need completed, asking all of the following questions to several providers in your area will land you at the right center for you.
How do your prices compare to those at radiology centers and hospitals in Kingston?
Learning how much more or less you will be paying at a diagnostic imaging center, as opposed to a hospital or radiology center is important because it could be the difference between you paying a reasonable amount or not.
Is your center recommended by other physicians in the area?
If a diagnostic imaging center is being recommended by physicians in your area, chances are it’s where you want to be. Doctors do not make recommendations lightly, and therefore won’t send you somewhere that they think would do a poor job.
Do you have the most current imaging technology at your facility?
While having the newest technology at a diagnostic imaging center is not required, having up to date technology is important. You don’t want to go in for an MRI only to discover that the machine being used in the facility is from 1998.
Do you offer advanced imaging services at the same location?
If you have the choice, you will want to visit a multi-modality center. This will allow for you to have multiple scans in the same day, rather than having to go multiple locations to get your different screenings.
How do they handle patients who suffer from claustrophobia?
Many people can get a bit panicked when they are in an MRI machine since it is such a small space. Some centers have open MRI machines that can be used in the case that a patient is claustrophobic or overweight.
How long will I have to wait for my results?
Having to wait a long time to get the results of a scan back can be extremely nerve-wracking. You want to make sure you are going to a diagnostic imaging center that will get your results to you in a timely manner. Additionally, you may be able to see your scans online depending on which facility you visit.
