At Ocean Radiology, our patients are the focus of everything we do. Our goal is to share that philosophy with you, from the moment you walk through our door.

To help you feel more prepared for your procedure, we invite you to review the guidelines below. They apply to all exams offered at Ocean Radiology.

Each type of imaging exam and diagnostic or therapeutic procedure also has its own specific guidelines. Special instructions for your exam will be given at the time of scheduling. For certain procedures, a Ocean Radiology representative will contact you 24–48 hours prior to your exam with instructions.

  • Notify your physician and Ocean Radiology staff if there is any chance that you may be pregnant or are currently breastfeeding.
  • Discuss any special needs, such as dietary and/or physical limitations, with us in advance.
  • Check with us in advance about recovery time or the need for a driver so you can make necessary arrangements with work and family.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early to verify your registration information and provide further health information for your exam.
  • Wear comfortable, metal-free clothing; be prepared to change into a patient gown if necessary.
  • Bring prior x-rays or scans with you to the exam if you are instructed to do so.
