Emergency radiology coverage: technical and clinical feasibility of an international Teleradiology model

The purpose of the study was to determine the feasibility of international teleradiology, utilizing day-night time differences, for online interpretation of overnight computed tomography (CT) studies. One hundred and two consecutive Emergency Room patients who underwent CT examinations between the hours of 11 pm and 7 am were enrolled. All age groups and study types were included. CT studies were transmitted from the in-hospital PACS system (Kodak, Fremont, Calif.) to a web-based server (Medweb, San Francisco, Calif.).
