Department of Radiology
Most radiology exams require a referral order from your doctor. If your doctor is a Partners Healthcare physician, she or he will make the order in our electronic order-entry system and will also schedule the appointment for the time and location you choose. Physicians who are not part of the Partners Healthcare network will need to fax your imaging exam order to us. After that is done, you can then call us to schedule your appointment. You can also call Radiology Scheduling to change your appointment. If you call when the office is closed (business hours are listed below), leave a message and your call will be returned the morning of the next business day.
Women who are due for their annual screening mammogram do not need a doctor’s referral and can schedule the appointment themselves by calling Radiology Scheduling.
Getting Copies of Your Images
If your imaging exam was performed at BWH or one of our community-based locations, your images and reports are saved to your electronic medical record within four hours after completion of your exam. You can get a copy of your images on a CD at the BWH Image Service Center or any of our community-based locations. You will need to complete a release form, which you can bring with you or fax prior to pick-up. You will also need to provide positive identification to receive your images.
