WHAT TO EXPECT
DIAGNOSTIC INJECTION AND PAIN MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES
During a diagnostic injection or pain management procedure, the technologist or nurse will stay with you in the room throughout the entire exam. A physician with additional expertise in pain management will perform the procedure.
AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE
After most procedures, you are free to leave. The technologist or nurse will help you off the table and walk you back to the changing room. They will let you know if your procedure requires you to be monitored afterwards.
GETTING YOUR RESULTS
The technologist transfers the images from your exam to one of our radiologist who specializes in analyzing images of the specific area of the body you had examined. The radiologist will then prepare a diagnostic report to share with the doctor that sent you to us. Your doctor will consider this information in context of your overall care, and talk with you about the results of your exam.
Give your doctor's office a call if you have questions on next steps or follow up appointments.
