X-Ray (Radiology)

State-of-the-art diagnostic imaging at CMC provides the detailed information needed to determine the best care.
 

X-Ray

An x-ray is a common imaging test used to view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help in diagnosing, monitoring and treating many medical conditions. To ensure optimal image quality with the shortest imaging times, our general x-ray diagnostic imaging equipment includes direct digital imaging.
 

Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures-similar to an x-ray ‘movie’. A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the part of the body being examined. The beam is transmitted to a monitor similar to a TV so that the body part and its motion can be viewed in detail. Fluoroscopy may be used for:

  • Barium x-rays (view movement in the GI tract)
  • Colon evaluation
  • Following bariatric surgery
  • During image guided procedures
Why Did I Receive

Two Bills?

If you received your x-ray exam at the hospital, you may receive two separate bills—one from the hospital and one from the radiologist. Please be assured that you are not being billed for the same service twice. Your x-ray consists of two distinct services. 

The hospital bill represents the technical component and account for items such as use of the x-ray equipment, pharmaceuticals, supplies and technical x-ray personnel.

The radiologist bill is for the professional interpretation of your x-ray images. The radiologists are specially trained physicians who study and interpret your x-ray examination and generate a written report that is sent to your doctor or the attending physicians that ordered your x-ray. Because radiologists are part of an independent practice, and are not employees of any of the hospitals where they provide services, their professional services are billed separately.
