• Scheduling

    Most of the examinations performed in the Department of Radiology are scheduled by your referring physician's office.

    Exceptions to this general rule are the following: 

    • Patients with a doctor's order or prescription for "plain film" X-rays (i.e. chest X-rays, bone X-rays, etc.) may come to the Department of Radiology in Burlington, Peabody or Lexington, Mass., anytime on a "walk-in" basis during normal and extended hours of operation (see below) to have their X-rays performed.
    • Patients wishing to have a yearly screening mammogram do not require a doctor's order or referral and may call 781-744-8000 to schedule an examination in Burlington, Peabody or Lexington.
    • Patients referred by a non-Lahey physician that have a doctor's order or prescription for a specialty study (i.e. CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, mammogram, nuclear medicine study, GI study, etc.) may call 781-744-8000 to schedule their examination in Burlington, Peabody or Lexington. (Note: Not all services are offered on the Peabody and Lexington campuses. A telephone representative will be able to guide you as to which campus can accommodate you for your examination.)
