WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recently released a new online feature through its My HealtheVet portal that allows veterans to access their medical images and associated study reports online. The tool, called VA Medical Images and Reports, allows veterans with a premium account to view, download and share copies of their radiology studies, such as X-rays, mammograms, MRIs and CTs, from the VA electronic health record. Veterans can view a list of accessible radiology studies, which are available in My HealtheVet, three calendar days after the study report has been verified. When a request for a specific study is completed, veterans can view a lower resolution thumbnail copy of the images and the associated radiology report online, or download a zip file that contains the report and diagnostic quality images.
