Diagnostic Services

We are dedicated to providing high quality teleradiology reports.

CT Reports

CT studies provide a phenomenal amount of information, which is why they are becoming increasingly common in both specialist and general practice. However, it is easy to get lost in the many slices and in everything there is to see.

Our radiologists are extremely experienced in CT interpretation and are dedicated to thorough examination of each study. Darkroom’s annotated CT reports provide you with clearly documented findings from a comprehensive review of your submitted study by a specialist in veterinary diagnostic imaging. This ensures you maximise the diagnostic value of your investigation.

Darkroom Veterinary Imaging reports are a valuable part of the communication between clinician and client (pet owner) as the annotated images in the report can help the client interpret the study and perceive the value of the test performed.

MRI Reports

MRI is the gold standard imaging test for examining the brain, spine and certain musculoskeletal regions.

Our radiologists are experienced in MRI interpretation. Our radiologists are available to discuss MRI protocols prior to the study if needed.

Darkroom’s annotated MRI reports provide you with clearly documented findings from a thorough review of your submitted study by a specialist in veterinary diagnostic imaging. This ensures you maximise the diagnostic value of your investigation.

Radiographic Reports

Specialist reporting of radiographs ensures you get the most out of your in-house radiographic studies and removes the “umm, maybe?!” from everyday diagnostic investigations.

All radiograph reports by Darkroom Veterinary Imaging include images from the study with annotated arrows and comments so you can see exactly where the pathology is, and where it isn’t!

Darkroom Veterinary Imaging reports are a great way of clearly demonstrating to the client (pet owner) the findings of the radiographic investigation.

How to send images to Darkroom Veterinary Imaging

There are two options to send DICOM images to Darkroom Veterinary Imaging:

  1. Upload to Dropbox - this is used by most of our clients:
    Send DICOM images via a shared folder using your clinic Dropbox account.
    Alternatively, we have a dedicated Dropbox account for our referring vets. Please contact us for log in details if needed.
  2. You can send via the Darkroom Veterinary Imaging DVMInsight platform:
    To set up a new client account please go to: http://www.dvminsight.net/Knowledgebase/List/Index/59/for-new-dvminsight-clients and specify Darkroom Veterinary Imaging.

Which should I use?

Do you have large studies to upload (e.g. CT studies routinely over 1500 images)? If so, we recommend you use Dropbox to submit your studies as in Australasia this is faster than using the DVMInsight server.

Do you want access to STAT/Urgent reports 24/7 (and the study sizes are not larger than 1,500 – 2,000 images)?

If so, we recommend you use the Darkroom Veterinary Imaging DVMInsight platform. Using this platform to submit cases gives you access to our 24/7 STAT service. When a case is marked as STAT/Urgent on submission, a text only radiograph report will be sent within 2 hours and a follow up Darkroom report with included images will be sent within 24 hours. For CT and MRI, a text only report will be sent within 8 hours and a follow up Darkroom report with included images will be sent within 24 hours. For STAT cases there is an additional STAT fee as well as the report fee.

Please note that for guaranteed STAT/urgent case reports 24/7, cases need to be uploaded via the DVMInsight system.

For Dropbox uploads, a STAT service is usually available during AEST business hours. Please call 1800 DARKROOM to confirm availability for STAT report via Dropbox upload.
