The Process Of Your Radiology Report

Patient's physician requests a radiology examination

Your physician needed diagnostic imaging results to assess your health concerns. His/her staff made an appointment for you at our imaging center or one of our hospital affiliates. 

At the imaging center / Hospital radiology department

You went to the imaging center or Hospital Outpatient Department where your exam was performed. The technologist performed the imaging requested by your referring physician. The type of imaging requested could be an X-ray, CT-scan, Mammogram, MRI or Ultrasound.

Imaging exam interpreted by one of our Radiologists

We preformed your procedure, read your exam, and prepared a report for your physician. Meet our Radiologists here.

Report sent to your doctor

Your doctor received the report prepared by one of our radiologists. View sample of our report here.

We send claim to the patient's insurance

After submitting the report to your doctor, South East Texas Imaging sends a bill for our professional services to your insurance company. If you had services in the Hospital Outpatient Department, the hospital will bill your insurance for their part of your care and we will bill for the Radiologist’s services related to performing your procedure and reading your imaging study.

We send bill to patient

We sent you a bill for the imaging services we provided for any balance due, deductible or co-pay. Again, this is a separate bill from the hospital/clinic. You can pay your bill online using our seamless patient portal.

Every hospital visit involves different physician specialists and hospital resources. A physician specialist is typically required to submit their billing separate from the hospital. For example, if you came to the emergency room and had an X-ray and laboratory tests, you may receive a bill from the emergency room physician for their professional services, but also, a bill from the radiologist for interpreting any X-rays.
