When deciding on center for your imaging procedure, many factors may come into play when deciding which is best for you. Type procedure, location, and affordability are all important factors when deciding on a center for your scan. Another important consideration applies to your radiologist.
Why wait for your results, when you can choose an on-site radiologist that provides you with answers right then and there. There are various reasons why you should choose a center with on-site radiologists for your next procedure, but these are just a few.
You are less likely to need follow-up imaging.
A study conducted by the American College of Radiology (ACR) found that follow-up imaging is less likely to happen when the radiologist interprets the initial exam. This study specifically focused on ultrasounds and the low rates that were associated with the rate of follow-up imaging.
As opposed to having your results sent away to be analyzed by a non-radiologist, on-site doctors had a rate of follow-up imaging that was 34% less when a radiologist interpreted the initial exam.
No need to send out your scans and wait for a response.
Waiting for nerve-wracking results can be the most difficult part of undergoing an imaging scan. When you go to an on-site radiologist, they will analyze your results just moments after your exam. No need to book another appointment or wait for a phone call with your results.
Ask your radiologists questions as soon as you get your results.
After receiving your results, you may have questions or concern that may arise. Visiting an on-site radiologist allows you to chat with your doctor about the results as soon as you receive them.
