UCI Health will see you now: Welcome to our new co-workers and patients from Fountain Valley, Lakewood, Los Alamitos and Placentia-Linda! 

Physicians: Send Records

UCI Health offers healthcare providers a safe and secure way to send medical imaging records to our radiologists electronically using Life Image.

Life Image is a HIPAA-compliant service. Just upload your patient’s medical images and related health records to Life Image and they will be delivered to UCI Health radiologists for review.

By sending us images before an appointment, we can ensure patients are seeing the most appropriate specialist for their condition. Having images in advance also allows physicians to begin developing a treatment plan before a patient’s appointment.

Healthcare providers may also submit images for a second opinion or a second read request. 

Please note:

  • Processing the uploaded images could take up to 24 hours before they are available to UCI Health providers.
  • Unless you are a physician, please do not upload images if you do not have a scheduled appointment.
  • Please leave an accurate phone number, as we may need to validate your information on the phone.
  • If you have your non-UCI Health Radiology medical images on a CD or USB flash drive and want to share them with a UCI Health physician, please click "Send Your Images" below.
