Needing to share images acutely with a hospital Doctor or referring to a hospital clinic or private specialist?

Images and Reports Online

All authorised GPs, Specialists and hospital based Doctors are able to electronically access all x-rays and reports for NCX patients on-line.

All NCX images and reports are securely stored on Horizon Radiology’s PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System).

Referrers wishing to access the Horizon PACS need a current Log-in and InteleViewer software on their computer.

Authorised health professionals who already have a log-in can go directly to Log-in on the Horizon website .

In most North Canterbury clinics, InteleViewer is already installed on the desktop with a bookmark to Horizon Radiology. (If the bookmark is not showing click here for instructions. Any problems phone NCX on 03-313-2369).

The website   also provides a link to more advanced down-loadable software for PC or Mac, recommended for Specialists needing more sophisticated imaging tools.

If you are a Referrer experiencing trouble accessing NCX images then please call us at NCX on 03-313-2369.

Access is restricted to health professionals only for the purposes of aiding diagnosis and treatment. These restrictions are in place to ensure privacy and safety of patients and referrers.

How to refer to NCX

The preferred option for referral to NCX in Canterbury is electronically via the ERMS system available on your patient management system (eg. MedTech) – choose the Radiology tab and select North Canterbury X-ray pop-up.

Alternatively print a NCX referral form here and hand to your patient or fax to NCX at 03-313-2368.

Sharing x-rays with a hospital Doctor or Specialist

All NCX Community Referred Radiology (CRR) written reports are automatically available on the internal CDHB PACS system. However, if you wish the NCX image to be available for viewing by any hospital doctor you must contact the CDHB PACS administrator (please ring switchboard at CDHB and ask to be put through to the on-call after-hours PACS administrator). They will transfer images from Horizon to CDHB at any time. Instruct the PACS team if the image needs to be retained on the hospital system (otherwise it may not be available after 2 weeks).

Alternatively, NCX images can be transferred to CDHB on request to NCX during normal opening hours by calling 03-313-2369.
