Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted every medical community including radiologists. Through teleradiology, radiologists have got an opportunity to optimize their workflows and process patient care. Radiologists can explore comprehensive healthcare solutions including novel diagnostic approaches for mammography and digital X-ray detectors.
Teleradiology helps the radiologist interpret the medical image remotely. The images generated can be X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans etc. Teleradiology increases the efficiency of radiologists to provide their services as the diagnostic interpretation from remote locations is possible. India, marked as a Teleradiology hub, has credited its competency levels with timely professional help and a varied number of subject matter experts. Immediate availability of diagnostic services is extremely important during Teleradiology and Medical Emergencies.
Teleradiology has emerged as a whiff of fresh air in India and it enhanced the productivity of doctors and hospitals. It is a cost-effective proposition and saves frequent visits to doctors. The immediate benefit to hospital systems is that there is an increase in patient referrals. Teleradiology comes in six general models. Solo-practioner, stand alone practice, over night services, overread services, global services and a hybrid combination of these.
Teleradiology is predominant in either of the two ways.
- The images can be transmitted to a radiology company that employs radiologists from different countries. The hospital-based radiologists overread these images and render the final interpretation.
- The images can be transmitted from the hospital to the home of a hospital-based radiologist after usual working hours.
