Scans & Results

How do I prepare for a scan?

There is little to do to prepare for an MRI—unless your doctor tells you otherwise, you may eat and drink normally before the procedure. Before your scan, you will be asked to wear a gown, and remove magnetic jewelry or clothing.


What happens during a scan?

You’ll be asked to lie on a table, which will then slide into the MRI machine. Whether your head goes in the tunnel or stays outside depends on which part of your body is being scanned. But don’t worry about getting bored—at TSSI, our MRI machine has a television screen built into the scanning chamber.


How long will it take?

Our machine is remarkably fast. In fact, it can image six scans in half the time it takes most other machines to do one. In other words, expect to be on your way in an hour or (much) less.


When will my results be available?

Your results will be sent to your referring doctor as early as the next day.


What if I have questions?

Please feel free to contact us with any questions at [phone number] or [email].

How does billing work?

We accept and submit for payment for most major health insurers including Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, among others. 

We require payment of any unpaid deductibles or co-pays at the time of service.


What are my payment options?

We require payment of any unpaid deductibles or co-pays at the time of service. We accept most major credit cards, and offer a 15% discount for cash-paying customers at time of service for patients not covered by one of our contracted insurers.
