Diagnostic Imaging Information Services (DI/IS)

The Diagnostic Imaging Information Services Division was established in 1999 as our department moved from a film to a filmless environment. It is responsible for maintaining and enhancing all the major computer applications within Diagnostic Imaging. These applications include the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), the departmental Radiology Information System (RIS), Voice Recognition (VR), and all associated hardware and software.

PocketHealth: access medical imaging records online
(for patients and families)

SickKids offers patients and their families access to their medical imaging records online at https://pocket.health/sickkids. Once patients enrol for access they can view their entire medical imaging history at SickKids, share imaging instantly with any physician or even burn their own CD/USB from home. There is a $5.00 fee at the time of enrolment (paid to PocketHealth) which includes permanent access to all previous imaging and radiologist reports as well as any new exams patients undergo over the following two weeks. Patients and their families can update their accounts with new SickKids imaging records anytime for additional $5.00 fees (paid to PocketHealth).
