After Your Appointment

Results of Your Exam

Please note that the technologist who performs your exam cannot interpret the results for you. Instead, one of our highly trained radiologists will interpret the exam and document their findings, which will be sent to the doctor or provider who requested the exam be performed. Your provider will communicate those results to you either by phone or at your next scheduled appointment.

Please note that you may access your personal imaging records on your own if you have a MyWeiiSpan account. For information about how to create a secure MyWellSpan account, click HERE.
