New website launched about imaging center information
RemakeHealth has gone live with an online resource to find a local imaging center, request appointments for radiology tests and look up medical imaging prices.

More than 500 million medical imaging tests are performed each year, making MRIs, CT scans and x-rays a part of every U.S. patient's medical life. The company said that healthcare consumers have few resources to learn about and choose from among the nearly 7,000 medical imaging centers that perform radiology tests.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company said 200 different radiology tests are available on the site.

RemakeHealth said its technology matches healthcare consumers to local radiology centers, showing facilities that take their insurance and can perform the test. Many centers also list cash prices for patients paying out of pocket.

The website lets healthcare consumers search for a radiology facility and learn more about their local providers, according to RemakeHealth. Each facility’s profile includes information such as office hours, location, imaging tests and certification.
