Imaging Guide

Treatment & Services

Doctors will order an imaging test to help diagnose an issue a patient is having that requires a more in-depth look. One of the most common types of imaging is an X-ray, which can check for broken bones or evaluate other conditions, such as pneumonia. Another kind of imaging is an ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to help doctors see soft tissues under the skin. While pregnant women frequently get an ultrasound to check on their babies, this type of imaging can also be used to look at how specific organs are functioning or check for inflammation inside the body.

Computed tomography (CT) scanning is another common type of imaging, and it works by taking cross-sectional images of the body to create a 3-D image. It’s frequently used in the head to look for trauma or tumors, in the lungs to look for emphysema, and in the heart to check for coronary artery disease. For a clearer image, your doctor may order a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which uses a magnetic field to see how the soft tissues in the body are aligned. It’s a vital tool for getting pictures of the brainstem, spine, and other hard-to-see areas of the body.

Insurance & Cost

Unfortunately, most imaging services aren’t cheap, as much of the technology involved is quite advanced. Luckily, however, most imaging clinics do accept insurance, which should greatly reduce your financial burden. If your insurance covers imaging, you’ll just need to pay a co-pay at the time of service. The average co-pay for patients receiving in-network imaging services was $319 in 2017.

Many plans also have co-insurance, meaning that until you meet your deductible, you’ll pay 100% of costs. After your deductible, your insurance company may cover a majority of the fees, usually 80% to 90%, while you’ll be responsible for the rest. For many of the above tests, you will need a doctor’s referral for the imaging to be covered by insurance.

If you don’t have insurance, expect to pay a large sum out of pocket. According to a study from 2018, the average cost of a CT exam in the United States was $896, and an MRI costs $1,145 on average.



Making an appointment with your closest imaging center is easy with the help of Solv. Go online with Solv and you can browse all nearby imaging centers, find the one that meets your needs, and book a same-day appointment with just a few clicks.

Most imaging centers maintain normal office hours, though if you’re suffering from an emergency like a broken arm, you will need to get the imaging tests done at an emergency room or another urgent care facility. Expect to book your appointment sometime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. In some cases, clinics may be open earlier, later, or on the weekends for your convenience.

Some centers may offer walk-in appointments, but these often aren’t reliable and could mean you wait around for hours. To make your experience as pleasant as possible, book your appointment ahead of time. This also gives the imaging office a chance to verify your insurance and to verify that you have authorization for your imaging procedure.
