Globally, leading hospitals and standalone diagnostic centers are experiencing an acute shortfall in the number of radiologists. The number of radiographic procedures being conducted is witnessing tremendous growth but is not being matched by a similar increase in the radiologist population. It is estimated that the number of radiographic imaging procedures are increasing at an annual rate of 15% as compared to a minor 2% increase in the radiologist population, thus leading to a huge supply deficit. Tele-radiology is the ideal solution to address this need.
Tele – Radiology is a specialized form of Tele – Medicine which involves transmission of radiographic images from the site of acquisition to the reporting location for the purposes of interpretation and / or consultation. Radiographic images are captured at a distant location and are then transmitted to radiologists in Health Square central reporting hub, through the PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) network via internet, where the images are interpreted and reported back to the client.
