COVID-19 Safety Precautions

As we navigate the recent spikes in COVID-19 locally, here is some important information to know:

  1. Imaging Specialists continues to follow all safety guidelines in place. Read more here for our detailed safety precautions and guidelines.
  2. We brought in a third party deep sanitation service immediately to thoroughly clean the entire facility, in addition to our frequent, daily cleaning policies.
  3. We assure our patients that any and all safety precautions available to Imaging Specialists are being implemented. For the protection of our staff, all patients are required to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer upon entering the facility. No visitors are permitted to accompany the patient unless a disability requiring mobility assistance is required or the patient is under 18 years of age.
  4. We ask that all patients and providers be cautious of their health so we can continue to safely provide you our full complement of advanced imaging services at a better price. If you do not feel well, please stay home and call us to reschedule your appointment at 843-881-4020.
  5. Online appointments for patients are available at ImagingSC.com. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3, and avoids wait times on the phone due to high call volume. If you call and do not reach a person, please leave a message. We will call you back.

Imaging Specialists Provides a Safe Space for Medical Imaging

While Imaging Specialists works toward a more robust schedule for patients, we will continue to implement heightened precautions. To protect everyone, we are closely following the guidance of local, national, and global health authorities – including the CDC, American College of Radiology, and the Society of Breast Imaging.

To maintain a safe environment for our staff and patients, here is what you can expect from us:

Patients and Staff to Wear Masks

All employees will wear company issued healthcare masks.  All patients are required to wear a mask before entering the facility.

Patients Only in All Areas

Only patients are allowed into the facility at the time of their appointment. No visitors, please.

Enhanced Patient Screening 
We screen all patients for fever, cough, shortness of breath, and recent travel. Patients are screened when calling to schedule an appointment, 1-2 days before their appointment, and at the check-in.

Employee Screening
Employees are required to stay home if sick and are screened daily for symptoms. They are required to complete a 14-day self-quarantine if returning from any airplane travel or exhibiting symptoms.

Social Distancing and Remote Waiting

In adherence to the social distancing guidelines, we will continue to limit the number of patients scheduled and provide optional remote waiting in your vehicle.

Increased Frequency Cleaning
Along with our current cleaning protocols, we are more frequently cleaning our patient and non-patient areas throughout the day with products that the EPA lists for effective use against COVID-19.

Reducing High-touch Surfaces
We encourage you to bring your own book as we have removed the reading materials in our centers.

Ongoing Updates
We are committed to updating our patients and community regularly as we make decisions regarding services.

We encourage you and your loved ones to continue to take these simple, protective steps:

  • Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. Be sure to wash between your fingers and scrub your nails, too – germs can linger beneath the nail bed.
  • Cough into your elbow or use a tissue to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Avoid touching your face – especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • If you are sick, please stay home.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the health, well-being, and safety of our community. As circumstances continue to change, we will keep you informed.

To schedule, please call 843-881-4020. Convenient online scheduling through our website at www.imagingsc.com is coming soon!
