Information for Referring Doctors

The magnets in MRI scanners are very powerful and pose a safety risk to certain patients. Southern Tier Imaging has a system in place to insure patient safety. Prior to any MR exam the patient is screened for contraindications and other items that may be hazardous or interfere with a MR examination.
Please ask your patient to contact us if they have not received a pre-screening call from us within 24 hours of their appointment being scheduled. Please instruct your patient to bring any x-rays or reports that they have regarding their MRI.

  • • Stent or Implant cards
  • • Any x-rays or reports from other exams that you have recently had pertaining to the reason
you are having an MRI.
