Good to know

  1. It is helpful to let the institution know you’ve sent your medical imaging online. A quick phone call ensures¬†their ShareMyXray notification has been received and doesn’t get missed in their spam folder.
  2. You can also send several studies at a time using the main Studies screen. Select all of the studies first, then click¬†‘Send to‘ and choose the destination.
