Your Imaging Visit

What do I need to bring?

Please bring the following to your appointment:

  • Physician prescription, if you have one. Many physicians will send the prescription directly to Crouse Hospital.
  • Photo ID
  • Your insurance card
  • Other information given to you by your physician (old exam images, medical reports or blood work results)
  • If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by a legal guardian

What happens when I arrive at my appointment?

When you arrive:

  • Sign in at the front desk, and our staff will assist you in registering.
  • One of our patient registrars will work with you to gather your information.
  • You’ll then return to the reception area where an Imaging Technologist will meet you.
  • You may be asked to drink some water or flavored contrast while you wait.

Will I have to wait a long time?

If you have waited more than 10 minutes with no explanation for the delay, please inquire at the front desk for an update. While delays do occur in a medical environment, our goal is to keep you informed of your progress.

When will I learn the results of my exam?

Because we carefully review each and every image to ensure accuracy the first time, our on-site radiologists typically report exam findings within 24 hours by contacting your physician. It is up to your physician to contact you with the results.
