Remember when entering an order on a patient for Radiology Services, that it is mandatory in the space for Clinical Indications to enter Signs or Symptoms that the patient is experiencing which necessitates the test(s). The statement R/O or F/U is NOT acceptable.

Unfortunately, if a patient presents from the floor with the order saying either R/O or F/U, we will contact you and advise you to cancel the order and re-enter an appropriate order.

Your cooperation in this matter will allow us to complete our patient exams in a timely manner, eliminating the need to duplicate paperwork.
