Choosing a Radiology Team
Deciding where to have your radiology test performed is an important decision.
Not all radiology departments are created equal. It’s important to understand that just because your doctor or insurance refers you to a specific facility does not mean it’s the best place for you or your care. You will sometimes be referred to the most affordable center, not necessarily the best. At the end of the day, the decision is yours—and you should choose a radiology department that puts your worries at ease.
