Who can provide the VirtuOst test? The VirtuOst BCT test is only available upon a doctor's or qualified medical professional’s order and can be provided by any of your local hospital and non-hospital healthcare providers that partner with O.N. Diagnostics; it can also be provided by the O.N. Diagnostics Medicare-enrolled Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility (IDTF), which is accessible to patients and physicians anywhere in the United States.
How does it work? For each type of provider, the VirtuOst BCT test utilizes a patient's existing CT scan. The CT scan is sent to the O.N. Diagnostics centralized testing facility for analysis with an accompanying order from a physician or qualified healthcare professional. Results are then returned to the ordering physician. The provider coordinates any reimbursement. For more information, refer to Sending Data to O.N. Diagnostics and CT Scans Suitable for BCT.
