X-rays must be ordered by a Northwestern Medicine Student Health Service practitioner. The Radiology Department is staffed by a Registered Technologist of Radiology (R.T.R.) and provides basic diagnostic X-rays. Your practitioner will review the X-rays at the time they are taken and a radiologist (M.D.) from Northwestern Memorial Hospital will provides the final interpretation. Official reports are usually available in about 48 hours or two working days. There is a flat fee of $126 for each general diagnostic X-ray procedure performed at Student Health Service Evanston. This fee includes the report that provides interpretation of the results of the procedure.
Digital copies of X-rays are available for a fee upon request. If you do not have the NU-sponsored Aetna Student Health insurance plan, we can bill your student account and provide a receipt that you may submit to your health insurance upon request. If you have any questions, please contact Radiology during regular business hours at 847.491.2139.
