- COVID-19 UPDATE
- ACC MRI E-Referral
TRG Imaging is moving to the Level 4 Alert lockdown. We do remain open as an essential service but will be offering limited services.
Our decision making is complex with discussions with the Ministry of Health, Maternity Services, BreastScreen, the 7 DHBs we interface with as well as the private radiology provider group. There are no national guidelines for the situation we are in.
TRG Imaging is severely limiting its services to urgent and acute examinations only. This will be reviewed regularly over the next few days and weeks.
TRG is limiting staff movements and patient interactions. We are currently going through our bookings and vetting requests, prioritising those examinations which need to be done soon and deferring non-urgent cases.
Please will you contact our Call Centre for bookings and/or speak to one of our radiologists if you require assistance for urgent examinations.
We thank you for your understanding at this challenging time and we will update you as things evolve.
The safest place for all of us during this countrywide lockdown is staying at home.
Look after yourselves and your families.
Dr Mike Baker
Radiologist and Clinical Managing Director

Searching for patients
The best way to search for studies on PACS is via the patient’s NHI which can be added into the Patient ID field. As not all patients who have examinations with TRGG have an NHI it is also possible to search via patient name. When searching via patient name it is important to remember to use the correct format.
The correct format: Surname, first name ( including comma and space)
PACS is the quickest way to access reports as they are available as soon as the radiologist has authorised the report.
Reports can be accessed in a number of ways:
Using the mouse to manipulate the image
The Inteleviewer assigns buttons to your mouse that work well together. What tools are assigned can be seen in the very bottom left hand corner of the screen.
Move the mouse forwards and backwards and side to side while holding the relevant mouse button.
The middle mouse button can be activated by pressing down on the mouse wheel.
Remember it is not possible for users to damage or change the image in any permanent way!
