Please provide the following details when you order an imaging exam:

1) Insurance Name and ID/Policy Number

This helps us quickly contact the correct insurance plan and obtain a timely authorization for your patient's exam.

2) Current Clinical Information

We will need to answer the following clinical questions in order to secure an authorization. Please provide this information as comments on an electronic order (insideCDI.com) or simply call us. This will help expedite the pre-authorization and reduce our calls back to your office requesting additional details.

  • Describe the current signs and physical exam findings.
  • Was there a specific injury or trauma?
  • Is there any past diagnostic imaging related to the body part being imaged (reports and images)?
  • Has the patient completed conservative treatment or therapy (e.g. physical therapy)? If so, for how long?
  • Is the patient on any medications?
  • What are you looking for?
3) Diagnosis

A diagnosis code is preferred by most insurance companies if available. A general diagnosis, such as knee pain or other symptoms, is useful if the actual code is not available. "Rule-outs" are not accepted as a primary diagnosis.
