CSU Health Network, in partnership with UCHealth, offers state-of-the-art, low-dose digital imaging services for students.
The Radiology Department is located on the 1st floor of the CSU Health and Medical Center in the UCHealth/Associates in Family Medicine suite. Radiology Services operate on the same hours as Associates in Family Medicine – CSU Office hours: Monday-Friday: 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Students must have a referral from a CSU Health Network medical provider or an outside medical provider to access imaging services.
Radiology services are staffed by licensed radiologic technologists. All x-rays are electronically transmitted to Advanced Medical Imaging Consultants (AMIC) consulting radiologists for interpretation, and electronically shared with a patient’s provider for follow-up.
Digital imaging services include, but are not limited to:
Special procedures such as CTs, MRIs, ultrasounds and mammograms are not performed at the CSU Health Network. If your medical provider orders a special procedure, the CSU Health Network referral coordinator can help you schedule an appointment at a local facility.
What to Expect
An X-ray uses a small amount of radiation to create images of your bones and internal organs. X-rays are most often used to detect bone or joint problems, or to check the heart and lungs (chest X-ray).
Be sure to let the X-ray technologist know if you:
- Are or may be pregnant
- Have had an X-ray of this part of your body before
- Have metal in the part of your body being imaged
Before Your Test
Here is what to expect before the test:
- You may be asked to remove your watch, jewelry, or garments with metal closures from the part of your body being imaged. These items can block part of the image.
- You may be asked to put on a gown.
- You may be asked about your overall health or any medicines you take.
During Your Test
Here is what to expect during the test:
- You will be asked to lie on a table, sit, or stand.
- A lead apron may be draped over part of your body to shield it from the X-rays.
After Your Test
Here is what to expect after the test:
- Your images and radiologist interpretation will be sent directly to your medical provider who initially ordered the X-ray. It typically takes 24 hours/one business day for your medical provider to receive results.
- Your medical provider will discuss the test results with you during a follow-up appointment or in a secure message through the Student Health Portal.
