1 Teleradiology Services Teleradiology Overview Why teleradiology services benefits the community, the clinician and the radiologist: Recent years have seen an increasing global shortage of radiologists and skilled manpower in radiology An ageing population across the globe with greater prevalence of cancer, heart disease and cerebrovascular diseases, all requiring imaging technologies for their detection and follow-up Rapid evolution of high-speed and high-resolution technologies with newer modalities now available for diagnosis = 64 slice CT, Ultrafast 3 Tesla MRI An increasing need for emergency services with radiology being the key to diagnosis. Turnaround times for reports are critical in delivering timely treatment. In the emergency setting these need to be as short as 30 minutes while in outpatient setting, hours is becoming the standard expectation. Teleradiology is a key means for optimization of radiology work flow, by bringing the images to the radiologist rather than vice versa. For all these reasons and more, teleradiology represents an idea whose time has come.

5 Sub Specialty Teleradiology Reading Teleradiology Solutions works in partnership with its clients across the full range of radiology disciplines. With a team of highly skilled and experienced specialist Board Certified Radiologists, we raise the bar in outpatient radiology reporting of all imaging modalities, including MRI, Neuro, Body, Musculoskeletal, screening chest CT examinations, Coronary CT angiography and PET-CT. We believe that sub specialty teleradiology reporting can help achieve maximum diagnostic benefits from radiology examination. A general radiologist may have trouble with reporting of studies such as musculoskeletal MRI. We therefore support sub specialist clinical departments or groups as well as general radiologists seeking support in a select niche within their general radiological practice. This means that patients and clinicians can benefit from the experience and expertise of Neuro, Body or MSK specialist radiologists and most importantly this does not involve any additional costs for our clients For more information please Contact us
