Requesting Radiology Images

If your physician is part of a BJC HealthCare hospital or facility, the transfer of radiology images and reports is a seamless process that requires no intervention by the patient. We will send an electronic transfer directly to your physician within 24 hours of your radiology test. If your physician is outside of our system, we can put your images on a CD to be shared with them.
