Radiology File/Film Room
The Radiology File Room is located on the 2nd Floor next to Mammography in the Radiology Department. The number to the file room is 337-531-3389. The file room fax is 337-531-3709. The file room is open Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. All request for images and reports are processed through Release of Information (ROI), which are filled out at the correspondence section, room 122, on the 1st Floor of the hospital. This request is presented to the file room clerk. All copies of e-film will be on CD. Hard copies will be printed for the operating room, emergency transfer of patients or with approval of the NCOIC. Request for copies will be processed not later than 48-hours after the request is received. Emergency requests will be processed immediately.
If you need to take X-ray exams with you, or have copies made, the file room is where you want to be. If you're going through a permanent change of station (PCS), bring a copy of your orders to the correspondence room to fill out your request for films. At minimum, bring the full name and address of your next assignment. If you have had mammograms here, it is imperative you check these out and hand carry them, or have them forwarded to your new assignment location.
Films and Results
It is our policy that all films be read by a radiologist before it leaves the area. If you wish to take films with you, you may need to wait until the radiologist is done reading them. Orthopedics and emergencies may be exceptions. Any doctor with CHCS and ISITE computer access can view transcribed results. It is suggested that you wait at least three working days for the results to be transcribed and entered in the system.
