What do I do if I need to take my images from today with me?
Let your technologist know and he/she will direct you to the File Room where our Radiology records are stored. Staff will accommodate your request as quickly as possible.
If you have left the hospital, please contact the Radiology File Room staff at (573) 882-3972. When possible, please allow a minimum of 24 hours notice to process your request. Your CD will be available for pickup at the Radiology File Room, room 2E-53, located inside University Hospital on the second floor of the hospital. If the request for copies is personal in nature or for insurance or legal purposes, there is a $20 fee per CD. If the request for copies are at the request of your physician or for further medical care, there is no charge.
University of Missouri Health Care's Health Information Services Department maintains a federally compliant Release of Information Authorization form (Health Information Disclosure form).This form identifies whom we are authorized to release information to and what records you want released. You will need to complete and sign this authorization form in the department. If it is more convenient, staff can fax the form to you and you can fax it back when it is completed.
If the patient is a minor (under 18 years of age), a signature from a legal guardian will be required before the information will be released. If the images are for a competent adult other than yourself, Federal and State Laws require a signed authorization form from the patient in order for the images to be released to you. A valid photo identification card that includes your signature, such as a driver's license, will be required for verification.
Physicians: If you need to add a patient's outside images to our PACS system, please complete the Adding Outside Films or CD Images to PACS form. Present the form and the images to the File Room, 2E-53, and staff will promptly add the requested images to our PACS.
