Get Critical Findings Straight from NationalRad's Client Portal!

Do you know you can be notified of critical findings through our client web portal?

Our radiologists mark positive and unexpected findings using our critical results management software. All critical findings are flagged and reported back to the client via our web portal. In addition, personal preferences can be set to notify of critical results via email as well.

Please note that regardless of how you set your client web portal and email preferences, we will still fax reports with critical findings and call to confirm receipt of those faxed reports.

For more information on how to access critical findings, please contact our office via email at INFO@NATIONALRAD.COM or by phone at 877.734.6674.
