BRI Offers Services for Referring Physicians


We understand in the fast paced environment of a physician’s office the last thing you have time to do is wait on hold with an insurance company to request precertification for an imaging procedure. At BRI, we are happy to take care of acquiring this precertification for you! We are now able to obtain pre-certs for all insurance companies.

Same Day Appointments Available

At BRI we will do our best to accommodate same/next day appointments for many of your patients in need of imaging services. We want to get your patient scanned as quickly as possible so you can move forward with your plan of care.

Fast Report Turnaround

Once a patient has been scanned, we know they expect results. Our skilled radiologists interpret each image with excellence and efficiency so we can offer a fast turnaround time for all patients seen at BRI. Final reporting on your patient is available in 1 – 2 hours and a “called report” will take less than 30 minutes.

Stat-Call Reporting Available

There are times when results simply aren’t fast enough. For those times we can offer you stat-call reporting services. If you indicate on the order that you’d like a stat-call, our radiologist will contact you immediately by phone once the images are received with the results of your patient’s scan.

Physician Info

Physicians may view their patient’s images in a variety of ways. Those with Saint Joseph Hospital “Hospitality Privileges” have online access to those scans. CDs are available to patients at the time of their exam and upon request we will deliver disks to the physician office. Films can be made for physicians if necessary. 3D and multiplanar imaging are routine with all CT angio.

The physicians of Central Kentucky Radiology provide the professional interpretation of your patients’ exams. To speak with a CKR radiologist, regarding your patient, phone Bluegrass Regional Imaging @859-276-2157 and we will have a radiologist contact you immediately.
