The Health Services Radiology Department is available to all NIU students that are eligible to use Health Services. General diagnostic and sports medicine x-ray examinations, as well as electrocardiograms, are provided at no cost to the student.

All x-rays are performed with a digital radiography system and transmitted through a teleradiology system to be read by board certified radiologists of Cape Radiology Group. Results are typically available the day of exam and reported to the student by the Health Services physician.

Copies of digital x-rays are available on CD upon request by students who require additional care outside Health Services. A nominal fee is charged for the CD.

The Radiology Department is staffed by licensed technologists who meet standards set by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. The x-ray department is licensed by the IEMA Division of Nuclear Safety. In addition, the radiology department is inspected annually by a health physicist and meets or exceeds standards set by the IEMA Division of Nuclear Safety.
