Selecting the right solution for teleradiology is crucial. Therefore, we offer you a comprehensive review of the available technologies to make your decision easier and more accurate.
Thanks to the ongoing technology development and the sinking costs of medical diagnostic equipment, examinations based on medical images are becoming increasingly common and accessible to a large part of the population. Even remote regions are nowadays in possession of sophisticated imaging equipment.
Unfortunately, the number of radiologist and specialists trained to read those medical images is not growing at the same rate as the studies being currently produced. This generates a serious bottle-neck, which becomes even more complicated as most professionals in the radiology field tend to settle in metropolitan areas.
If a second opinion is required, the shipping of images to another specialist may involve very high costs and even the quickest means of transport can be too slow if a human life depends on it.
By implementing teleradiology systems, many hospitals and imaging centres can solve these key issues. Radiologists do not have to be present at the same location as the patients and even the largest images can be transferred in a matter of minutes. This way, hospitals and imaging centres increase their independence and flexibility as well as savings in time and resources. Additionally, they can outsource possibilities for sub-specializations while keeping high standards and eliminating bottle-necks.
