SOUTH BEND, Ind., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- XRC Medical Imaging (XRCMI) has announced a new rapid results program offering feedback directly to patients regarding their imaging tests within 24 hours of their appointments. XRCMI Medical Director Vu Nguyen, M.D., noted that in many cases, patients will actually get their test results before they leave from their appointment. Tests in the rapid results program include diagnostic mammograms, general X-rays and bone density tests, as well as CT and ultrasound scans.
"We understand the anxiety and stress that often go along with waiting for test results," said Nguyen. "We reviewed our current testing procedures and found a way to get results back to patients and their doctors within hours for most tests. It's a challenging commitment, but one that's very important to the patients we serve and our referring physicians."
All of XRCMI's radiologists are board-certified physicians, and unlike some imaging centers, all XRCMI exams are interpreted by radiologists located onsite in the facility, making quick results possible. According to Nguyen, screening mammograms and PET/CT scans receive special treatment. Results of screening mammograms are routinely mailed to patients within 48 hours, and radiologists are available to consult directly with patients' physicians regarding PET/CT interpretation results within hours of completion of the study.
XRCMI offers quality service and flexible scheduling in a private and comfortable environment. For referring physicians, XRCMI provides the latest technology and a broad assortment of testing capabilities with exceptional radiology expertise.
