Radiology

A national radiology practice called Virtual Radiologic (vRad) has expanded access to high-quality interpretations from subspecialists across the U.S.
After clients' scanning and information systems are connected to vRad's technology platform, mammography studies and patient information can be routed quickly and automatically to fellowship-trained breast imagers. When combined with MagView's structured reporting system, vRad facilitates direct communication between vRad's radiologists and remote technologists about the magnified views critical in providing the most accurate breast cancer detection. vRad's technology platform also enables radiology practices and their clients to have real-time communication with subspecialists.

"Small and mid-size radiology practices without the patient volume to justify a breast imaging specialist will find it absolutely invaluable," says Arlene Sussman, M.D., vRad's director of breast imaging. "Even the larger practices with subspecialists on staff can use the program for overflow and staffing coverage."
