Radiology must confront outsourcing challenges

April 14, 2006

Teleradiology has apparently come of age. Imaging examinations can be sent via high-speed connections to anywhere in the world, at increasingly low cost. Teleradiology also appears to be a profitable business. Take, for example, the services emerging to cover the night shift for U.S. radiologists. Teleradiology Solutions and TeleDiagnosys Services are just two of the many enterprises in the field, both offering this service from a base in India.
