Direct Electronic Radiology Imaging Sends From Non UMHS Facilities


Where did your patient have their radiology imaging done?

  • If the answer is any of the below listed sites you can request that the imaging be sent electronically.
  • Patient must first have a UM Medical Record Number. Create one if the patient is new to our system.
  • Requisition must be created and associated with a MiChart order. Fax printed order to UM radiology customer service center at: 734-936-8280.

MiChart "Outside Image Archive Only” orders generate NO cost/bill to the patient.

MiChart “Outside Image Interpret and Archive” orders will generate an interpretation by expert sub-specialty radiologists upon completion of the MiChart order. Stat reads can be accommodated when clinically indicated. Outside Image Interpret and Archive” will generate a cost to the patient’s insurance.

Call the non-UMHS hospital’s radiology file room, listed below, to have images electronically uploaded to the University of Michigan.

Non-UMHS hospitals may require Patient Name, DOB, study dates before transferring images to UMHS.

In an effort to improve the process for importing outside images, Ambulatory Care has purchased a product from LifeIMAGE ( to be implemented institution wide.

  1. LifeIMAGE LILA allows clinics to upload their own CDs and “nominate” them to Radiology to be uploaded into the PACS. The advantages of using LifeIMAGE are users no longer have to make a trip to Radiology to drop their CDs to be uploaded and the clinicians will be able to view these exams right away in LifeIMAGE before they are uploaded to the WebPACS.
  2. LifeIMAGE Referral Box/permanent connections allow outside institutions to electronically send outside imaging exams to UMHS to be reviewed by clinicians and imported into the patient’s medical records.
  3. LifeIMAGE One-Time-Use Credentials Feature allows patients and outside institutions to upload their imaging exams and send them electronically to UMHS to be reviewed by clinicians and imported into the patient’s medical records.
