Abstract

Teleradiology is the electronic transmission of radiologic images from one location to another for the purpose of interpretation or consultation. The use of teleradiology expands the responsibilities of the supervising radiologists, physicists, and engineers. Teleradiology is being utilized increasingly to provide remote primary diagnoses rather than just preliminary interpretations or overreads. Consequently, it is essential that regular quality assurance and improvement mechanisms be in place. This article details the facets of quality initiatives that should be a component of every comprehensive teleradiology program.
