Teleradiology: another revolution in radiology?

Clin Radiol. 1998 Aug;53(8):547-53. doi: 10.1016/s0009-9260(98)80145-1.


Teleradiology systems are rapidly being deployed by an increasing number of radiological services. Many articles have already been published on the technological developments of teleradiology but little attention has been given to its expected impact on the delivery of health care. This review article will therefore outline the historical and current technological developments of teleradiology and its potential future implementation into mainstream radiology.
