What to Expect

Diagnostic imaging has helped make tremendous advances possible in many areas of medicine, but we understand you may have concerns about the specific medical imaging procedures prescribed for you or your loved ones.

The best place to get information about what to expect is from your physician or other health care provider, but when you need or want to know more, there’s an in-depth, unbiased source you can tap into.

RadiologyInfo.org provides information on how various X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, radiation therapy and other procedures are performed as well as what you may experience and how to prepare for the exams. The website contains more than 115 radiologic procedures and is updated frequently with new information, including current research on the effects of radiation exposure. All material on the RadiologyInfo.org website is reviewed and approved by experts from the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) as well as other professional radiology organizations.
