Road accidents are a leading cause of death in India. According to the latest data released by the National Crime Records Bureau, 1,55,622 deaths occurred due to road accidents in India in 2021. More than 60% of these accidents happen at night. These numbers could have been very less if timely diagnosis had been available to them. However, the casualties of road accidents do not get proper care as they occur at night or on weekends when there is an unavailability of physicians and radiologists to report a case.
How Teleradiology Caters to this Requirement?
When a patient arrives at a hospital under critical circumstances, such as accident and/or trauma, radiology is inevitable. In such situations, the timeliness and accuracy of radiology reports are essential factors in the path to prognosis so that the right course of action can be taken to prevent the loss of life. Considering most accidents happen during the night, on-duty radiologists may be unavailable in most of the hospitals. In such cases, a physician who is not an expert radiologist reads a radiology report and starts treatment, which is not the most viable option.
By using teleradiology services, hospitals can get access to timely and accurate reports even after regular working hours and on weekends or holidays. Teleradiology enables expert radiologists to offer their expertise irrespective of time and helps in saving lives.
