Get My Results

Imaging tests are interpreted by a UCSF Radiologist, who will then write a report with the results of your radiology exam. The report is typically available within two to five working days. There are two different ways you can access this report and receive your results:

 1. MyChart

The easiest way to receive your report and the images from your radiology exam is by accessing them on the UCSF MyChart patient portal. We’ll notify you of new results once a day between 8 and 9 a.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). If you prefer to be notified after your results as they are finalized, you can change your notification settings in MyChart.

Please note, because your results are available in MyChart immediately after they are finalized by the Radiologist, your care team may not have yet reviewed the report.

2. UCSF Imaging Library

The report and images are also available by CD, free of charge. To request a CD, complete the following form:
Health Information Release Form

(Spanish version, en español)

Please include the following information with your Release of Information form:

  • Date of imaging exam and type of imaging exam
  • Mailing address (including zip code) 

Email the form to [email protected] or fax to (415) 353-8583.

CDs are mailed five to seven business days after the release form is received.


If you have any questions about obtaining a copy of your images and report, contact the Radiology Imaging Library:

Open seven days a week, ​7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Understanding Your Results

Your report may contain complex words and information. Your care team will discuss the results with you at your next visit, by telephone, or with MyChart messaging. If you do not have a visit scheduled and wish to schedule one, please reach out to your referring provider through MyChart or by calling the referring provider’s office directly.
