What is teleradiology

Teleradiology is the transmission and display of radiological images, such as CT scans and X-Rays, in a location independent of the location the patient is imaged. It allows specialist doctors (Radiologists) to provide an expert and timely report to allow clinicians to decide on the best treatment for their patients.

Teleradiology with Medica

Our platform enables the secure electronic transmission of radiological patient images from one location to another, for the purposes of diagnostic interpretation and reporting by highly-qualified radiologist experts. Through teleradiology, images can be transmitted from the hospital setting, where the images are created, to a reporter who can review and report on the images remotely. In the case of Medica, these reporters comprise consultant radiologists, reporting radiographers and rheumatologists, all specialising in their relevant field, who typically report on the images from their own home or from one of Medica’s dedicated reporting centres. Teleradiology improves patient care by enabling reporters to provide their services remotely, thereby facilitating the rapid availability of trained specialists 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
