emailing Dr. DeSmet?
« on: April 05, 2013, 05:04:57 AM »
Is there a way to send Dr. DeSmet an email of your x-rays without having to send a hard copy to Belgium? It always seems that people are getting opinions from him and I wondered if they were sending him their x-rays by snail mail and he was responding via email or if you can somehow email him directly. Please let me know if you know this process works. Thanks.

Marco - sorry I changed your post by placing a link to my instructions for converting an x-rays to digital format. Normally my website has the same information as Vicky's. If you can't find it, the index is a great place to look since I have over a 1000 pages on the website listed on Google along with 400 more for hip stories along with over 5000 for the Hip Talk Discussionn Group posts  http://www.surfacehippy.info/sitemap.php  You can also do a Google search from the end of the right column.

When you convert the x-ray, make the largest horitzontal or verticle side about 600 pixels. Try not to make it too large or it won't send well.

Also most of the digital x-rays I get now all have a converting software with them if you put the disc into your computer and check it out.

You can also take real x-rays and hold them up to the window and take a digital photo of them.  You need a light source and light from a window not in direct sun does work.  That is how I took photos of my original x-rays in 2006.

If you wanted to send them via snail mail, just email Dr. De Smet and ask the correct address to use.  He normally answers all his emails.

I hope that helps.

Pat

I think my question was confusing. I understand how to email x-rays but what I wasn't clear about was how I go about getting Dr. DeSmet's email address? Does he give it out to anyone or just patients of his own?

Thanks.
Amy
