Imaging Records (Film Library)

Requests for copies of medical imaging examinations

Image for the medical imaging film library At St Michael’s Hospital your privacy is important to us. We are pleased to provide two ways for our patients to receive copies of their imaging exams.

Online

The PocketHealth method allows an ease of access for our patients and their families by creating complete control of the patients’ own imaging records. Patients can enroll to access their imaging exams online via PocketHealth. Our patients' complete imaging records while at St Michael’s Hospital, including imaging reports, are available permanently online.

There is a $5 administration fee payable to PocketHealth. After you enroll, your images can also be shared via PocketHealth. Simply click on “share” and enter the email address of the recipient with whom you wish to share your images.

CD/DVD

With the changing of technology, we found an increasing number of our referring physicians no longer had CD drives in their offices. We kindly ask that you consider the Pockethealth option mentioned above as the preferred method. You, as the patient, can control who and how many times your records are shared.
