Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How long will my exam take?

    Most exams take between 30-60 minutes.

  2. What should I wear to the exam?

    Comfortable clothing. Avoid wearing anything with metal including jewelry, zippers and snaps. Those items will need to be removed before the test. Women can wear a sports bra with no metal.

  3. Will I feel any pain?

    No, not from the test. MRI uses a magnetic field to acquire the images so you will not feel any pain. You must lie very still during the test. Some patients become uncomfortable lying in one position. If you think you will have trouble lying down, notify the technologist.

  4. How soon after my test can I expect the results?

    A board certified radiologist will read your exam and a report will be sent to your referring doctor within 24-48 hours. It is recommended that you speak to your referring doctor for an explanation of the test.

  5. Do you have self-pay and co-payment options or discounts?

    Yes. We do have options available for patients with no insurance or co-pays. We also take most credit cards and CareCredit. Call our office prior to your exam to discuss payment arrangements and discounts.

  6. What insurances do you take?

    We accept most major insurance plans. For a full list of insurances that we are contracted with, see the insurance tab in the “for patients” section

  7. How do I contact someone about my bill?
    For billing inquiries, please call Physicians Sales and Support (PSS) at
    800-339-5844

  8. Can I fill out my paperwork before I arrive?

    Yes. Go to the patient form tab in the for patients section. There you can download and print most of the necessary forms prior to your exam.

  9. Where can I leave a comment about my experience at your facility?

    Our Patients feedback is always welcome and appreciated. Under the contact us tab choose patient survey. There you may fill out our survey that will be emailed to our corporate headquarters

  10. Why do you need all of my prior films?

    The radiologist needs to see how your current films compare with old ones. This helps to identify changes that may have occurred since your last examination and makes for a more accurate exam.



Advantages of Open MRI –


Even though Open MRI exams uses a lower field strength magnet and often take longer to complete, excellent image quality and an accurate diagnosis are easily achievable because patients tend to be more comfortable and can remain still longer. With an open MRI, technologists have more room to position patients, which will produce a better test.

Other types of MRI scanners, called Closed MRI Scanners, you might discover that you experience claustrophobia. Closed MRI scanners have a tube shaped like a long donut. For most scans, your entire body will be inside the tube, with the top of the tube close to your face and your shoulders brushing its sides.

Additionally, our wooden floors and soft lights create a soothing environment to put patients at ease. We have a sitting area in the exam room and invite family a member to stay in the room with patients during their exam.

Open MRI has given large patients access to high tech imaging. Open MRI scanners have a wider opening and their table weight limits are substantially higher than those of closed MRI machines. With a wider opening, positioning overweight patients into the scanner is much easier which can improve image quality.
