RADIOGRAPH READING REQUEST

Teleradiology Services

Interpreting radiographs can be challenging.  When the stakes are high and you are faced with difficult decisions, like whether or not to perform an exploratory surgery or initiate treatment for heart failure, radiograph interpretation provided by a board certified radiologist can provide peace of mind and a better outcome for your patient.

Our radiologist, Dr. Tasha Axam, is available to interpret your radiographs Monday through Friday—giving you access to the same peace of mind that our specialists and ER doctors enjoy every day.  And, unlike most corporate online teleradiology services, your patients can also benefit from the expertise of our internal medicine specialists and emergency doctors who are available to Dr. Axam when the need arises.

Submitting a Study

Teleradiology services are available Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays.

There is a 24-hour or less turnaround time on all submissions. Radiographs submitted by 4:00 pm can be read the same day. Radiographs that are submitted after 4:00 pm on Friday will be read on Monday.

A complete written report will be faxed or emailed to your veterinary practice.

In order to provide you with timely information in emergency situations, Dr. Axam will call with an initial verbal report before sending a formal written report.

For all readings, include a radiograph reading request form submitted through our website or by fax.

Digital images must be in DICOM format (not JPG). You may transmit DICOM files via your PACS server directly to SFVS’s PACS server. For help with PACS connectivity, please contact Tommy Meers at 404-924-2000, ext. 108. Please ensure that all images include patient name and hospital name. Discs will not be returned, so please retain copies of all images for your records.

Veterinary practices will be billed monthly for this service.
