For Referring Veterinarians
The diagnostic imaging section at WSU welcomes referral radiographic, MRI,
CT, and ultrasound images which are reviewed by faculty and residents. A
telephone report will be provided the same day the study is received followed by
a fax/email of the written report within 24 hours.
Both hard copy and electronic images may be submitted. Electronic images may be
submitted by email OR directly to our server (instructions below).
Fax: (509) 335-3330
Diagnostic Imaging Referral Form
- Please complete the
Referral Form with all requested information and submit via fax or email to
complete the referral submission process. The date of a digital examination is
imperative for image retrieval and an accurate history is greatly appreciated.
- The fastest way to submit radiographs is via Federal Express, which will
be delivered to the office by noon the following day. All other services
(including UPS, US Postal Service, etc.) go through WSU main campus mail and
require an additional day of processing.
- Those with CR or DR units can add the WSU Referral Server information to
your remote server list or destination list to send cases to WSU using the
following information below. If you need assistance, we would be happy to assist
you in your initial setup.
IP Address: 126.96.36.199
AE Title: WSUradref
To send us images, simply select the case
and WSUradref as the destination, then send.
- For electronic referrals; images may be digitized and submitted via
e-mail. You will still need to completely fill out the Diagnostic Imaging
Referral Form and send it to the Radiology office. Payments can be submitted
using a VISA or Master Card by including the card number and expiration date on
the referral form, or these referrals can be billed.
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding other image formats: (jpg, tiff, bmp, etc.)
In addition to being editable, jpg, tiff, bmp and other imaging formats (except
DICOM) can severely limit the ability of the radiologist to adjust the image for
optimum viewing and therefore have the potential to result in a misdiagnosis.
These image formats limit the information available, important findings and
information can be lost from the original DICOM file format.
Thank you for your cooperation as we strive to improve our referral image
