In a previous post, Teleradiology: A New Frontier in Medical Imaging, we wrote about the “new” phenomenon of teleradiology and how it’s changed medical imaging for the better. In this post, we want to lay out the basics of an effective teleradiology system.
Hardware and Software
Effective teleradiology demands:
- A web-based 3D PACS (to allow medical imaging professionals to read all kinds of images)
- An RIS, preferably with speech-recognition technology
- Integration with the healthcare organization’s other software
- Secure – that is, includes strong security features – storage and transmission of images and patient information
