Teleradiology: The Search for Radiologists


by Michael Allen

Teleradiology is a rapidly growing market and one that bridges the gap between the imbalanced demand and supply of radiologists. Encompassing modern internet technology to provide high quality service not only for patients but for medical professionals who use it.

Teleradiology operates in parallel to the telemedicine market - which was the fastest growing category in digital health last year - Teleradiology has benefited from this expansion due to the demand for images to be included in even more patient diagnosis.

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the Teleradiology market was valued at $0.92b in 2012 which included X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and Nuclear Imaging. As this growth continues it is estimated to reach a value of $3.7b by 2019.

Businesses within this market are looking to capitalise on this influx, thus creating a demand for Radiologists. Teleradiology reporting services offer lucrative salaries and flexible working hours so that Radiologists can balance roles working within their position within the NHS, whilst also using a private sector business to increase their income. This also helps in suppressing the pressure that the NHS encounters when completing reports and provides better service for patients.

With the demand for Radiologists rising there comes a need to identify and attract talent. We are perfectly placed to source and introduce the right talent for your business and would welcome the opportunity to discuss this further. Feel free to give me a call.
