Sending CT scans to the O.N. Diagnostics IDTF. Either a CT scan (CAT scan) must be mailed to O.N. Diagnostics, or, information on the CT scanning facility should be included on the BCT order form so that O.N. Diagnostics can arrange to get the scan directly from the imaging facility. Please request a VirtuOst Order Packet for more information.
Receiving results from the O.N. Diagnostics IDTF. Results are returned to the ordering physician via fax or HIPAA-compliant secure email, typically within 1–3 days of receiving the CT scan. Staff at the O.N. Diagnostics IDTF are not authorized to discuss diagnostic test results directly with any patient.
Electronic Transmission for Partnering Facilities. For partnering facilities interested in integrating VirtuOst testing into their clinical care setting, O.N. Diagnostics can integrate directly with your health IT systems to support data transmission. Options vary from drag-and-drop file transfer from a desktop PC — easy to set up, no IT expertise needed — to third-party solutions such as PowerShare, to customized PACS-to-PACS communication via VPN. All elements of the data can be transferred electronically, from orders to CT scans to results. Our staff will work with you to customize a protocol.
