Department of Radiology

We take pride in offering personal services to all of our patients in a caring and comfortable setting.

General Radiology

Our hours for outpatient services are 7:00AM until 6:00PM Monday through Friday. Most general radiology exams do not need an appointment and therefore patients can walk in at their convenience. Patients will be required to register in the Outpatient Lobby with a script and any referral and or co-pay/deductible that may be needed.
Fluoroscopy studies will require scheduling an appointment time and can be arranged by calling the scheduling department at 215-487-4502.

To pick up or release your films to your physician please call our Radiology File Room at 215-487-4500.

Finding Results for Your Procedure

If you’ve just completed an x-ray or other diagnostic imaging procedure, you probably want to know when you will find out your results and what your images show. They’re pretty natural questions because most people want to know what, if anything is wrong with them. The process of getting results actually begins when your physician determines that diagnostic imaging will provide more information on which to base a diagnosis or treatment plan.

The radiology department receives a request from your physician, specifying the type of exam needed, reason for the exam and any special instructions. If you’ve had a prior imaging study of the same part of the body, the radiology department will try to obtain your old images before the procedure. Previous imaging studies are useful for comparison with current images. You may be asked to sign a release form if your images are located at another facility.

Before the exam, the radiologic technologist verifies the imaging order to determine which specific techniques should be used. These specially trained professionals perform the procedure. The quality of a diagnostic image depends on their skill and expertise. Although the radiologic technologist cannot tell you the outcome of your exam, he or she can give you some idea when the results will be reported to your physician. Once the exam is completed, the radiologist, a physician who is trained to read diagnostic images, examines the images. The radiologist dictates a report describing the techniques used to acquire the image, the reason for the exam, relevant patient history and what the images show. The report then is sent to the ordering physician who will discuss the results with you. Your diagnostic images are a part of your medical record.

Although they are your private personal information, the facility where your exam was performed has physical control over them. If you move or change physicians, you must authorize their release to have the images transferred.
