FAQ: I have a copy of a scan on a disc. Can you upload it into a patient's medical record for me?

The HIRO is not able to load scans into EPIC/PACS. If you need an outside scan imported into a patient's hospital medical record so it can be accessed and reviewed via EPIC like other scans, you will need to bring the disc to the Radiology Film Room (extension 2-1788) so they can import it. The HIRO is able to retrieve copies of outside scans that have been imported into EPIC/PACS in this manner, so if the scan has already been imported and stored with the patient's EPIC chart and you need it submitted to a clinical trial sponsor, you do not need to bring the original disc to the HIRO -- you simply need to submit an image request to the HIRO with the relevant scan information.
