Why Choose Duke

National Accreditation
Our ACR-accredited facilities are staffed by providers with specialized training in radiology. Duke technologists are certified and registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in their area of expertise, for example, MRI or CT. Duke sonographers are certified through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. While not required, these accreditations and certifications demonstrate our commitment to providing you with the best experience possible. 

Minimizing Radiation Exposure
If you are getting a CT scan, nuclear medicine scan, or an X-ray, you may be concerned about radiation exposure. Although the risks linked to radiation exposure from a single exam are very low, we take every precaution to minimize them, including using CT scans and other radiation-based imaging only when there is a clear benefit over another test. We also restrict imaging to the specific area of concern, use the latest technology to achieve the best-quality images with the lowest radiation exposure, and customize techniques and dosage for each patient. 

Multiple Locations
We offer imaging services at all Duke hospitals and multiple Duke ambulatory clinics throughout the Triangle and beyond. This makes it easy for you to get the imaging test you need, whether it is an emergency CT scan or a routine mammogram. Some locations offer same-day or next-day appointments as well as evening and weekend appointments.

Fast, Accurate Results
Once your images are complete, they are interpreted by a radiologist specially trained in medical image interpretation. Your report and images will be available through My Duke Health. A new, interactive format translates complicated medical terms on your report into plain language and includes helpful diagrams. This empowers you to better understand your results and have more meaningful conversations with your doctor.

Secure Image Sharing
Sharing the results of previous imaging tests with your Duke provider is important whether you are a new patient or are seeking a second opinion. Having access to this information allows your provider to compare new images with older ones and can eliminate redundant testing. You can make a request for images through My Duke Health, email, fax, or letter, or you can upload them yourself. Our goal is to transfer images securely, always protecting your privacy.
