What Our Patients Say About PRP

I found them to be very professional, wait times were not too long and I was dealt with efficiently and courteously. I have a choice if any practice for my post op images but am happily coming back here. Getting access to your images and Radiologist reports on their App is also a huge plus. Excellent.

How to Prepare for Your Medical Imaging Appointment

If you’ve never received an Ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, X-ray, or other type of medical scan, you may have some questions before your appointment at PRP Diagnostic Imaging.

What To Bring

  • Referral
  • Medicare Card
  • Payment
  • List of current medications
  • Recent previous imaging done elsewhere
  • Support person (if needed)

Before Your Appointment

Arrive 10 -15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete paperwork.

The duration of your appointment and preparation instructions will vary depending on the type of imaging your Doctor has requested.

You’ll receive specific preparation instructions at the time of booking.

For more information about preparation and scan times, scroll down to our medical imaging services.

After Your Appointment

It’s a good idea to maintain a high fluid intake for 24 hours after some scans.

Images are available to you via the MyPRP patient portal. Your images, along with a report, are sent directly to your Doctor—usually within 1-2 business days.

Our network of radiologists provide you and your Doctor with access to a wide range of specialist expertise to report on your images.


A quote for your examination will be provided at the time of booking, pricing can vary due to Medicare requirements. If you have more specific questions about this, call us directly to chat with a staff member.

Faster results combined with an accurate diagnosis provide the peace of mind you need to move forward.
