You may pre-register your child before the day of their exam, or on the same day. A representative from Primary Children’s should contact you to help you to pre-register. If you are unable to pre-register, a patient representative in imaging will do this with you when you arrive for your child’s exam. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled exam time and bring your doctors order (if it was given to you) and insurance information with you. You may also fax the order to 801-662-1809. If your child will be receiving sedation or contrast, you will need to provide a list of all medications that your child is currently taking. It is important to be on time. Your child’s test may need to be rescheduled if you are late. When you arrive in imaging, check in with a patient representative. Once you have checked in please do not leave the department.

Canceling or Rescheduling

If you need to reschedule or cancel your child’s exam, please contact 801-662-1800 as soon as possible.


Test results will be available from your child’s physician in 1 to 2 days. Results can be made available more quickly in urgent situations or if requested by your child’s physician.

Exam Preparation

Some exams require special preparations. We have provided information sheets on preparation requirement for the exam for which your child may be scheduled. If you have questions or concerns about the exam preparation you may contact 801-662-1800.


Some imaging procedures will require sedation to help your child to hold still, and to decrease anxiety. If your child’s doctor determines that sedation is appropriate for your child, it will be ordered at the same time that the imaging procedure is ordered. If sedation is needed, fasting will be required. A nurse will contact you 1 to 2 days before the procedure to give you age-specific instructions for preparing your child. If you have questions or concerns about sedation procedures please call 801-662-1870 to speak with a nurse. Sedations are supported by the Nurse Practitioner Service which is under the direction of Pediatric Anesthesiology.
