1. Teleradiology thru DVMInsight:
If your system is digital, we recommend using our Teleradiology Service. This service allows a hospital to submit digital images and have them interpreted by one of our radiologists at a significant cost savings.

Available: Monday thru Saturday and during some University Holidays.

For more information, please contact the Medical Imaging Department (612-625-1200) or visit the Teleradiology Information site.

For technical support, please contact DVM Insight directly.

Please note, the above service takes 2-3 working days to setup, so immediate submissions through this service would not be possible.

2. All other Digital Submissions:
Ideal submission method is a CD/DVD, however, you may submit digital images via email. The only acceptable email address is: vetpacs[at]umn[dot]edu (change the [at] to @ and [dot] to a period. This is written out to prevent SPAM bots from sending us emails. Please place OUTFILM as the email subject.

Available: Monday thru Friday. This service is not available on weekends or during University holidays.

Only DICOM (.dcm) Images Accepted: For an accurate diagnostic interpretation we require DICOM images (extension .dcm). All other forms of images such as jpeg, bitmap, tiff files will no longer be accepted. Non-DICOM images are generally considered non-diagnostic as there is a loss of information during the compression to jpeg, etc.

DICOM images are often large files. If you plan to email them, please note that you may have to email them individually, or only one or two per email, depending on your email program. Alternatively, if your system has DICOM send capabilities, the Medical Imaging Department has setup a workstation to receive images from your system. Please see our request form for the server information, which includes IP address, AE Title & Port Number. We do not need any information from your system.
