Receiving diagnostic imaging services shouldn’t be a stressful experience. At Gateway Diagnostic Imaging, we strive to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. Here’s everything you need to know about receiving imaging services at Gateway Diagnostic Imaging, including what services we offer, how to schedule, and which insurances we accept.
Gateway Diagnostic Imaging has twelve convenient locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Find a location near you.
Gateway Diagnostic Imaging offers MRI, CT, ultrasound, and X-ray. At all twelve locations, we offer 3T wide-bore MRI for reduced scan time and higher resolution images. All scan results are read by board-certified, subspecialized radiologists. Learn more about our services.
An order from your doctor is required for MRI, CT scans, and ultrasound. Most insurance companies require a referral if you want them to cover the cost of your scan.
Your doctor may also opt to fax orders directly to Gateway. In that case, our customer service team will reach out once we’ve received your order to schedule an appointment.
Many patients are able to be seen same-day or the next day. This can change depending on authorization from your insurance company.
Yes! We know many of our patients have jobs, caregiving responsibilities, and other obligations from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We offer flexible weekend, early morning, and evening hours to make sure you get the imaging you need at a time that’s best for you.
Before your appointment, we’ll send you paperwork to fill out online. All you need to bring with you to your appointment is your photo ID and insurance card, unless you’re instructed otherwise.
If you struggle with claustrophobia, we have several options that can help. Our 3T 70-centimeter wide-bore MRI machines feel less enclosed, leading to less anxiety than other MRI machines. We also offer machines that allow you to enter first with your head facing out, which can reduce feelings of claustrophobia.
For all MRI scans, we offer headphones so you can listen to music during your scan.
We are in-network with all major insurance companies, including Blue Cross® Blue Shield®, UnitedHealthcare®, Aetna®, and Cigna®, and we accept CareCredit®.
If you’re worried about the cost, we’re here to help. We have a financial assistance program available to those who qualify and self-pay rates for anyone without insurance. We also work hard to ensure our imaging is affordable, with our MRIs costing up to 400% less than hospital MRIs.
Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to receiving the care you need. Learn more about Gateway Diagnostic Imaging’s financial assistance program.
