Getting a Copy of Your Diagnostic Images

Adventist Health Simi Valley makes it easy to manage your records

If you need a copy of your X-rays, MRI scan, CT scan or other images for a medical appointment or other purposes, Adventist Health Simi Valley is here to help. Just follow the steps outlined below.

Step 1: Identification. Make sure you have the proper identification before you arrive so there won’t be a delay in processing your request:

  • If you’re requesting your own images, please bring a photo ID with you, such as a valid driver’s license or passport. You must be at least 18 years old to request your images.
  • If you’re requesting images for a patient under age 18 and you are the parent or guardian, please bring your valid ID with you.
  • If you’re requesting images for someone for whom you have power of attorney, you must bring that document with you, unless you know for certain Adventist Health Simi Valley already has the document on file. Please also bring your photo ID with you.
  • If you’re requesting images for someone whose injuries prevent them from making the request in person, you must have a note from the patient that includes the patient’s name, your name and a statement specifying that the patient has designated you to retrieve the images. You must also bring your photo ID and a copy of the patient’s photo ID.

If you have a question about identification, call (805) 955-6360.

Step 2: Choose your location. You can request your images at any of three Adventist Health Simi Valley-affiliated imaging centers. It is not necessary to go to the same center where you originally had the images taken; you may go to whichever center is most convenient for you.

  • Adventist Health Simi Valley, located at 2975 N. Sycamore Drive in Simi Valley. This location is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the week (including weekends). Park in the lot off of Jones Way behind the emergency room and enter through the ER entrance. Tell the security guard on duty you need to go to the radiology department, and they will direct you.
  • The Aspen Outpatient Center, located at 2750 Sycamore Drive in Simi Valley. This location is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Wood Ranch Imaging Center, located at 124 Macaw Lane in Simi Valley. This location is open from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Step 3: Get your images. You will be asked to complete a release of records form in order to receive your images. Afterward, it takes about 10 minutes to create a CD with your images. There is no charge for this service.
