What are your hours?

How should I prepare for my test?
When your test is scheduled, the MAC/PAC representative will give you instructions as to how to prepare for your test and what to expect during and after your test. In many cases you will want a friend or family member to drive you home. Feel free to ask the MAC/PAC nurse any questions about your test.

Diagnostic Centers are centrally located and accessible from the main entrance of the hospital. Free Valet Parking is available.
What is the appointment cancellation policy?

How quickly will my results be sent to my doctors office?The radiologist reports are turned around very quickly in most cases. There may be delays if we are waiting for images from another location for comparison or waiting for a radiologist to read the images. A report may have already arrived at your physician's office, but he or she may want to compare lab or other information prior to calling to discuss results.
How do I get a copy of my report?The Medical Records web page explains how to obtain your hospital medical records and has the form that needs to be completed.
Can you send my exam reports to multiple physicians' offices?Yes, exam reports can be sent to multiple locations. Please inform the registration staff and technologist which offices reports need to be sent.
Do I need a referral for a mammogram?Patients do not need a referral for a screening mammogram. To schedule a screening mammogram, call 402-717-2222; or at Creighton University Medical Center, call 402-449-5446. You may also request an appointment online. We will ask for a physician's contact information be provided so results can be sent to the office. A physician's order is needed for a diagnostic mammogram to evaluate a breast complaint or abnormality detected by physical exam or screening mammogram. .
