Abstract

Observer performance of radiologists using a telemedicine service was evaluated. Diagnoses between the rural and consulting radiologists agreed 84% of the time. The main reason for disagreement was extent of lesion rather than type or absence/presence. Consulting times and image quality were considered adequate.
