We understand that waiting for the results of your imaging test may cause you significant anxiety. We believe it is your right to know your results. Our Results Now program can eliminate the anxiety that comes with waiting for results. At Northeast Radiology, our physicians will review your images and give you preliminary results while you wait. In some cases, when comparison studies are not available or when advanced computer post-processing is required, it will not be possible to give you preliminary results immediately. In these cases, we will call you as soon as your results are available.
We have expanded our Results Now program to offer preliminary results of biopsy procedures such as breast biopsies and thyroid biopsies. This unique service is available only at Northeast Radiology. Please speak to our scheduling or nursing personnel if you are interested in preliminary biopsy results.
Regardless of whether you choose the Results Now option, rest assured that a final report will be delivered to your doctor’s office rapidly. Final results are almost always available with 24 hours. Average report time from when an exam is completed until the radiologist signs the diagnostic report is less than 4 hours.
Patients at Northeast Radiology who register for our patient portal, and have compatible software, can access all of their results using our secure HIPAA compliant on-line server at any time from any place after three business days of their exam. Your physician also has on-line access to your results and images using our secure server.
