Tele-radiology, which allows remote radiologists to view medical images, including X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and diagnostic tests, is one of the most common types of telemedicine activities. Tele-radiology can allow specialists to view images any time of day for hospitals without radiologists onsite around the clock, as well as for consultative work.

Among the products supporting tele-radiology is Viztek's Opal-RAD picture archiving and communication system (PACS), which offers multiple tools that cater to the telemedicine radiology practice. Those tools include Turnaround-Time (TAT), shown here, which gives radiologists easy visibility to monitor time commitments, ensuring reports are read and signed within any contractually agreed time.
