Colonoscopy and Endoscopy on CD

I will be leaving the country for about 1 year (if my health permits). I have been collecting most of my tests on CD and any films to bring along with me to Japan. My Gastro. says he doesn't do "films". I wanted my colonoscopy and endoscopy results on CD, but they were not made available to me. I just don't won't any doctor in Japan to think it necessary to repeat the tests.

Are colonoscopy and endoscopy results as readily available on CD, as x-ray exams are?

No. I work in healthcare, and we do not put those kinds of tests on CD like CT scans and MRIs. You might be able to get the printed text results of the tests to take with you though.

Re: Colonoscopy and Endoscopy on CD

Thank You. I was able to get the printed test results. I just hope they suffice, as I am going to a different country and they may want to see things are there own. BTW, I had these 2 tests done in Feb. of 09.
