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 https://referrer.horizonradiology.co.nz/Portal/app .
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 http://www.horizonradiology.co.nz/referrers 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.
