In an interview published earlier this month with FierceMedicalImaging, David Levin, M.D., a professor and chairman emeritus of the department of radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, discussed some of his reservations with the practice of teleradiology.
According to Levin, while the original concept of teleradiology--providing supplemental services to smaller radiology practices that struggled to be constantly on call--wasn't a bad one, in recent years it has devolved into an excuse for radiologists to work less.
However, for Carlos Vasquez (pictured)--division director of radiology services for two of Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health's three hospitals in Lafayette, Ind.--teleradiology has been the difference between the ability to provide coverage for most of the day and round-the-clock coverage.
