There are many ways you can refer a patient for an Ultrasound:
Send an automated referral from your workstation or facility that automatically faxes to us.
If your facility does not have automated referrals, you can write a script or order using your internal paperwork & fax to us.
Use our general order form which is provided below to print out and fill out with pertinent information for exam you wish you to order.
Have your patient hand carry your referral or order. If possible, we would prefer these faxed to us as it is required to have an exam order prior to seeing the patient but we will accept hand carried referrals.

How You Get Results & Images
Every Diagnostic-Medical Ultrasound we perform at Picture Perfect Ultrasound is interpreted the same day it is performed. Upon completion of the ultrasound, the images are sent digitally through a secure VPN network to PACS (Picture Archiving Communication System). These images are then immediately available for the Radiologist (interpreting physician) to look at the ultrasound performed and dictate a formal report.
You, as the referring physician will receive this formal final report along with the sonographer worksheet the same day exam is performed. We will fax it back to the number provided on the referral. In the event of a positive alert or critical finding, our staff will keep the patient in our office while we phone your office and speak with you or your nurse regarding those findings. This allows us to get direction on what to do with the patient based upon your input.
Our PACS system does communicate with the PACS at our local hospitals (Billings Clinic and St. Vincent Healthcare) and so if you are provider within one of these facilities, you can immediately see the images on your workstation for outside studies. In addition, we can push images to facilities through Powershare (Nuance) platforms if you are set up for imaging sharing method.
If you are a provider or physician outside of Billings, you can request us to send you the ultrasound images via CD which will be DICOM and computer compatible for viewing. We do not create CD's on all patients and it is only when requested. Most outside physicians do not wish to have the ultrasound images but rather only want the Radiologist report. However, if you wish to have the report and images, please let us know!
