We have an EHR that uses SQL Server 2012 and we use a Topaz pad for signatures. The image is stored in a table as a varbinary (max) and I'm wondering is there a way to get this image to show up in Crystal Reports 2011?

Just drag that field onto the report canvas, and a preview should show the image, provided it is a supported image type: BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, WMF.

If it's not one of the supported image types, you would need to either convert in the database or use a Crystal Reports UFL to do the conversion on the fly.
