Teleradiology as every other branch of telemedicine, owes its birth to imbalance of demand and supply. Teleradiology is the transmission of images such as x-rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another for the purposes of sharing studies with other radiologists and physicians.

This is particularly important when a sub-specialist such as a

MRI radiologist
Neuroradiologist
pediatric radiologist
musculoskeletal radiologist
is needed, since these professionals are generally only located in large metropolitan areas working during daytime hours. Teleradiology allows for trained specialists to be available 24/7.

Teleradiology Field is changing fast in recent years. Future Teleradiology is the leading company for providing the teleradiology reporting service.

The technology has led to reduced workload on radiologists, faster turn-around time for patients, and cost savings for hospitals who find that Teleradiology presents an attractive alternative to having radiologists available 24×7 hours a day.

The modern practice of radiology involves several different healthcare professions working as a team.
