What Should I bring to my appointment?


  • Bring the prescription from your physician and any insurance information including your referral or pre-certification on the day of your appointment. If you do not bring this information, we will have to reschedule your appointment.


  • Please remember to bring or send any previous test results, films or cd’s.


  • Arrive 15 minutes ahead of time to fill out forms, unless you have already filled them out.


  • We ask many questions about your medical history. This aids the radiologist in making the best diagnosis and determine any health risks.

A breast ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure that may be recommended in addition to the yearly screening mammogram for women who could be at higher risk for breast cancer, have dense breasts or otherwise difficult to interpret mammograms.


In addition, we provide thyroid, abdominal, DVT, pelvic and renal ultrasound tests to help diagnose and treat other women’s health concerns.
