Abstract

Teleradiology is one of the oldest, most established, successful, and widely used clinical telemedicine specialties. There are a variety of factors that have led to this high degree of success, but there are also challenges and barriers that still exist. This review will address both of these aspects of teleradiology, within the context of the current literature on this topic, as well as from the perspective of a program that has been conducting teleradiology consultations for nearly 20 years. Some key considerations of what it takes to establish a successful teleradiology program will be discussed, with respect to technology, quality, and personnel. In particular, the role of mobile devices and smart phones will be reviewed, as these technologies are becoming much more pervasive throughout the health care enterprise. The important role of teleradiology in stroke assessment as an emerging application area will also be highlighted.
