Orthopedic Specialists provides imaging services including digital X-rays and MRIs for the injured areas of your body at our four office locations. If you have any questions regarding X-rays or MRIs taken at our facility, please call (515) 955-6767.

On your X-ray and/or MRI examination day at Orthopedic Specialists:

  • Bring your doctor’s order and your insurance card with you to your appointment.

  • If an X-ray or MRI has previously been taken, please bring the films with you to your appointment.

  • If you are unable to bring your previous films with you, your appointment may need to be rescheduled.

  • You will be asked to change from your clothes into a medical gown that we provide.

  • Please remove all metal objects from your body, including watches, jewelry, keys, wallets, purses, cell phones, and pagers. Lockers are available to secure your belongings.

  • If you think you are claustrophobic, talk to your doctor about possibly taking a mild sedation before your MRI exam. If you plan on taking a sedative, please bring a family member or friend to drive you home.

  • Please note that during your MRI exam, you may be wearing earplugs or headphones, as the MRI machine makes noises.
