Where can I find the MRI screening form?
We no longer ask patients to fill out a patient procedure screening form before an MRI exam. Instead, you will receive a phone call from our MRI staff three days before your appointment.
The call should only take a few minutes of your time. Our staff will ask you questions to help us prepare for your exam, including if you have ever had an allergic reaction to contrast used for imaging exams and if you have any metal or electronic implant anywhere in your body.
For your safety, we will also confirm your responses when you arrive for your appointment.
How do I get a copy of my images?
Our Image Service Center can provide images and reports for imaging exams at Mass General. You can submit a request online or in person at our office in Boston. All requests need two signed release forms: Authorization for Release of Medical Images and Authorization for Release of Protected or Privileged Health Information.
Can you send my images to my doctor?
Images and reports for imaging exams at Mass General are read by radiologists and sent electronically to the doctor who ordered the exam. They are available to all doctors in the Partners HealthCare system.
If you would like to request your images for a doctor who is not part of the Partners HealthCare system, our Image Service Center can send digital images by CD or DVD. All requests need two signed release forms: Authorization for Release of Medical Images and Authorization for Release of Protected or Privileged Health Information. Check out our tips for filling out release forms.
