The Radiology Department at Health & Counseling Services Medical Clinic is located on the first floor of the Human Services Building. It is staffed by one full-time registered Radiographer.
Special procedures ordered by an EIU Medical Clinic provider will be scheduled with other health care providers. Please contact your insurance provider regarding payment coverage.
May I come into the Medical Clinic and ask for an x-ray without first seeing a doctor?
No. Only a medical doctor can order x-rays. When you come into the Health Service, the nurse will document your condition and make an appointment with a physician if necessary.
Why are my x-rays sent to a Radiologist?
All EIU x-rays are reviewed by a Radiologist, a physician who specializes in interpreting x-rays. Most Radiology reports are available within 2 business days.
What happens to the x-rays after the technologist takes the picture?
X-rays taken at the Medical Clinic are the property of Eastern Illinois University. X-rays are a permanent part of the patient’s electronic medical record.
Why do I need to remove body piercings?
The metal rings or posts may interfere with the x-ray procedure. This depends on the part of the body being examined, so please inform the technologist if you have any body piercings.
