What to Expect During Your Visit
Depending on your procedure, you should plan to arrive between 15 and 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment in order to complete necessary paperwork for registration.
What to Bring
Plan to bring your insurance card, referral or written order/prescription, and the name and address of your insurance plan and/or claims payer. After completing your paperwork, you can relax in our comfortable waiting areas, some of which offer wireless Internet access.
What to Wear
Before your test or procedure, you will be escorted to a changing room, where you will change into a gown for your test. Wear comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing and remove any metal body jewelry. Leave jewelry and other valuables at home.
Length of Procedure
The length of your procedure will depend on what type of procedure you’re having and other factors. Please ask for this information when your procedure is scheduled.
Receiving Your Results
In most cases UPMC radiologists return reports to your physician within 24 hours. Occasionally it may take longer. Your doctor generally will take a day or two to review the results. You can expect to hear from your doctor in three to five days. If you don’t receive a phone call after five days, call your physician’s office to ask about your results.
Please note that not all locations offer wireless Internet access.
