Specialties

  • Diagnostic X-ray

  • To schedule with our medical imaging department please call 720-455-1111

    Diagnostic X-rays are taken primarily when there is the possibility of a bone-related injury. 

    In an X-ray bone appears white on a gray or black background so radiologists can easily determine if a fracture or break has occurred to the bone. X-rays are painless.

    An X-ray requires a physician referral. We welcome physician referrals and pride ourselves on prompt follow-up with our physician partners. Appointments are available Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.

    Helpful Tips for our X-ray patients

    Scheduling an Appointment

    An X-ray requires a physician referral. Once our scheduling department receives the order for the X-ray from the referring physician we will call you to schedule an appointment and complete the necessary registration over the phone. With pre-registration complete you will then need to arrive the day of your appointment only 15 minutes prior. Sometimes the urgency of the test precludes pre-registration and then we ask that you arrive 30 minutes prior to the time of your appointment to complete the necessary paperwork. Please come prepared with your insurance card, photo ID and co-payment. Insurance co-payments are due at the time of service.

    Parking/On-site Directions

    Convenient parking for patients is located in front of our entrance. Patients should enter through our main entrance and turn to the left to check in at our Imaging Registration desk.

    What to Wear

    Dressing rooms with gowns and lockers are available for personal items and valuables.

    Preparation

    No preparation is required for an X-ray.

    What to Expect

    Patients will be positioned on the imaging table based on their injury and the type of image (or image series) being taken. The X-ray technologist will position the machine and patient in various poses and take the image. X-ray images can blur, and patients may be asked to hold still or hold their breath for a few seconds while the image is being taken.

    Results

    Your X-ray results will be sent to your referring physician. For your records we are happy to provide you with a CD of your X-ray.
