Please note that all human imaging studies on BMEII Human Scanners (1470 Madison Ave Hess Sc2) will need to be ordered and scheduled on EPIC starting May 5th, 2024. 

Given this scheduling platform change, we are working on updating instructions for ordering/scheduling exams on human imaging scanners. 

Please refer to the SharePoint website for additional instructions, as this site will be continually updated throughout the GoLive transition. 

Before you may schedule a scan, you must have all IRB and/or IACUC paperwork completed.

All imaging research conducted in BMEII or elsewhere in Radiology at Mount Sinai Hospital must create a new project on Calpendo (see Starting a Research Project URL SOP101). Studies will not be able to order a research imaging study without BMEII approval. Once the project is created and approved in Calpendo, you may start scheduling.

For Human Subjects: Scheduling will occur via the new EPIC Radiant platform. Please ensure all trainings have been completed in order to be granted to appropriate access to schedule.

Beginning 5/5/2024, Calpendo will only be used to schedule the following services:

  • Mock Scanner
  • Neuro Testing rooms
  • The Small Animal Imaging Center (Sc1 Level) 

Scheduling with Calpendo

Step 1: Prior to using Calpendo, make sure that you have the most recent version of your current browser. In your browser, type the URL: then press enter.

Step 2: If you have never used Calpendo previously, click “Register New User,” otherwise skip step 2, and continue to Step 3.

You will not be able to use Calpendo until your registration has been approved. The approval may take up to a few days. Once you have received approval, continue to Step 3.

Step 3: If necessary, reenter the original URL: then enter the username (login name) and password specified in the “New User Registration” form. When the correct username and password have been entered, click “Login.”

Step 4: The first time that you log into Calpendo, you will be unable to schedule. The user must be registered under an approved project. In order to create a project, click “Projects,” then “Create Project.” In order to review any projects that you are currently assigned to, choose “My Projects.” You may be assigned to multiple projects at a time. If you have already been approved for the project that you wish to schedule for, go to Step 5.

Once all of the items in Step 4 have been completed, click “Submit Project Proposal.” You will not be able to schedule until your project has been approved. The approval may take up to a few days. Once your project is approved, continue to Step 5.

Step 5: If necessary, reenter the original URL: then enter the username (login name) and password specified in the “New User Registration” form. Any areas in green are areas that are available for scheduling. Any other areas in pink may not be used for scheduling purposes. In order to schedule, click and drag the time slot that you wish to use. Keep in mind that particular resources have timing restrictions imposed. Fill out the window that appears after releasing the mouse then click “Create Booking.”

In order to locate the MRN #, refer to CERNER. To ensure that your booking is successful, it is recommended that all relevant information be copied and pasted directly from CERNER.

If you have any additional questions, contact Daniel Samber.
