I have an annual ultrasound scan yearly on a cyst on one kidney. I have also had various other scans and X-rays over the years, and have always found the staff cheerful and helpful, both in the waiting areas and in the treatment centres.
The only suggestion I would make is that patients who are clearly very ill and are being wheeled around on beds are given more privacy. Their beds are often "parked" in the corridor of the scanning dept, where they are in full view of people visiting for more minor procedures. Perhaps one area or room could be used as a waiting bay for such cases. They look most unhappy to be on view.
