Before your appointment
Before undergoing any radiology procedure, you should be sure your physician is aware of any allergies and all the medications you take, including over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking certain medications for one or more days before the radiology procedure. Please let your physician and the radiologic technician know of any stents, pacemakers and other metal devices you have, as they may make certain procedures inappropriate.
Simple bone or chest x-rays require no special preparation. Some tests, such as those that look at the digestive tract, require a special diet or fasting. Other tests may require the use of a "contrast" liquid that is either taken by mouth or is injected before the procedure.
Women who may be or are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised to notify their physician or technologist before having any radiology procedure.
All services provided at San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital are accredited by The Joint Commission.
Our radiology team will take care of you.
The radiology team is led by a radiologist, technician, and nurse and sometimes a medical physicist is included.
A radiologist is a physician who interprets the results of tests; performs certain procedures; and consults with other physicians. All of our radiologists are Board Certified with the American Board of Radiology.
Technicians perform the tests such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, nuclear medicine, mammograms, and ultrasound procedures.
Nurses assist with more complex radiology procedures, such as those requiring sedation, intravenous (IV) medications, and contrast and/or nuclear substances.
Medical physicists ensure the accurate and safe delivery of radiation therapy. Medical physicists are certified by the American Board of Radiology or the American Board of Medical Physics.
