ACR Standard for teleradiology
Páginas: 9 págs.Introducción:
Teleradiology is the electronic transmission of radiologic images from one location to another for the purposes of interpretation and/or consultation. Teleradiology may allow more timely interpretation of radiologic images and give greater access to secondary consultations and to improved continuing education. Users in different locations may simultaneously view images.
Appropriately utilized, teleradiology may improve access to radiologic interpretations and thus significantly improve patient care.
Teleradiology is not appropriate if the available teleradiology system does not provide images of sufficient quality to perform the indicated task. When a teleradiology system is used to render the official interpretation, there should not be a clinically significant loss of data from image acquisition through transmission to final image display. For transmission of images for display use only, the image quality should be sufficient to satisfy the needs of
the clinical circumstance.
This standard defines goals, qualifications of personnel, equipment guidelines, licensing, credentialing, liability, communication, quality control, and quality improvement for teleradiology. While not all-inclusive, the standard should serve as a model for all physicians and health care workers who utilize teleradiology. A glossary of commonly used terminology (Appendix A) and a
reference list are included.ACR - The American College of Radiology
