A. No. Due to the ionizing radiation used in some exams, we suggest you try to find other accommodations for your children during your appointment time.

Q. Who will contact me with the results of my exam?
A. The physician that ordered your exam should contact you with the results if you haven't already scheduled a follow up appointment with them.

A. The doctor that ordered the exam will normally have results within 48 hours of your exam's completion. If they have not received the results please contact us at 719-526-7300.
