Teleradiology In The United States

Teleradiology is an important commercial activity in the United States. The American College of Radiology policy is to require physicians interpreting images in other states to be licensed in both the state where the image was generated as well as the state where the interpretation takes place.

Referring physicians and healthcare providers throughout the United States use National Diagnostic Image teleradiology services - November 9 2022 - Cleveland Ohio

Referring physicians and healthcare providers throughout the United States use National Diagnostic Imaging teleradiology reporting services.

Teleradiology systems became commercially available in the 1980s from a few vendors but clinical applications were limited. Teleradiology became workable in the mid 1990’s when high-speed communications networks became accessible throughout the United States and digital radiography started to replace film-based radiology.

Almost all radiologic exams are now digital. Before the advent of digital radiography (DR), images were acquired and viewed on sheets of film that were placed on a light box for interpretation.

Radiology was founded on a technological discovery by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895. Historically, teleradiology started back in 1947 when x-ray images were transmitted using telephone lines.

Because of COVID-19, many radiological practices have embraced teleradiology. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, radiology practices and departments started to increase their use of teleradiology and virtual technology tools to maintain their workloads from remote locations.

Chest CT has a potential role in the diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) - November 16 2022 - National Diagnostic Imaging - Cleveland Ohio

Chest CT has a potential role in the diagnosis, detection of complications, and prognostication of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Chest CT is valuable to detect both alternative diagnoses and complications of COVID-19 (acute respiratory distress syndrome, pulmonary embolism, and heart failure), while its role for prognostication requires further investigation. This study aimed to assess the characteristic chest X-ray features of COVID-19 and correlate them with clinical outcomes of patients. Chest CT imaging may be used to stratify the severity of lung involvement and to predict outcomes in COVID-19, which in turn may assist physicians with proper triaging of patients and allocation of resources. Knowledge of the natural temporal evolution of lung abnormalities in COVID-19 may be helpful to radiologists in determining the stage of disease and in distinguishing them from potential complications when evaluating chest CT examinations.

Today, teleradiology has facilitated a unique role in delivering quality radiologic interpretations to hospital emergency rooms and other health facilities that do not have access to a radiologist’s contemporaneous interpretation in the past. For many years, the US government and the US military have advocated the use of teleradiology and digital imaging.

The National Teleradiology Program provides 24/7 diagnostic radiology services to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facilities located in all Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs), rendering final diagnostic interpretations on a wide variety of modalities including, computerized tomography scans (CTs), X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine imaging studies.

Some university-based teleradiology practices in the United States, provide teleradiology services to supplement academic radiology department income.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) uses the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) to reimburse physician services.

Regarding reimbursement, the ACR Task Force on International Teleradiology recognizes that there is no inherent technological difference between domestically generated teleradiology interpretations and reports and those generated outside of the United States (federal law prohibits Medicare from reimbursing physicians who interpret radiologic studies from outside the United States.)

Medicare considers the site of service to be where the physician interpreted a study). In both instances, assurance of quality and competency is necessary. Therefore, payment for radiologic interpretations and subsequent reports that are rendered by international teleradiology is appropriate if the following criteria are met.

Learn more about Medicare claims processing for radiology services and other diagnostic procedures in this Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services PDF. Acceptable HCPCS codes for radiology and other diagnostic services are taken primarily from the CPT4 portion of HCPCS. The CPT-4 is a uniform coding system consisting of descriptive terms and identifying codes that are used primarily to identify medical services and procedures furnished by physicians and other health care professionals.


The Current State of Teleradiology Across the United States: A National Survey of Radiologists’ Habits, Attitudes, and Perceptions on Teleradiology Practice

Journal of the American College of Radiology
Volume 16, Issue 12, December 2019, Pages 1677-1687

A national survey explored the current state of teleradiology practice, defined as the interpretation of imaging examinations at a different facility from where the examination was performed.

Despite historic concerns, teleradiology is widespread throughout modern radiology practice, helping practices achieve geographic, after-hours, and multispecialty coverage; reducing turnaround times; and expanding underserved access.

Nonetheless, quality assurance of offsite examinations remains necessary. IT integration solutions could help smaller practices achieve teleradiology’s benefits.
