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.
About Radiology Reports Written By NDI Radiologists
NDI radiology reports comprise the sum of their radiologist’s complete insight into a patient’s condition in order to help focus patient care. NDI radiologists use a clear and concise radiology reporting style.
NDI radiology reports represents the culmination of the process of interpreting a radiological study. These formal documents are often medically and legally important. The final report is the definitive documentation of the results of an imaging examination or procedure.
In their written radiology reports, NDI diagnostic radiologists use standardized imaging findings terminology, report organization, assessment structure and classification for reporting and data collection in patient imaging.
Radiology reports are permanent parts of the patient’s medical records. The ACR has parameters for radiology reporting practices that specify how the final report should be generated and archived after any examination, procedure, or consultation.
Effective communication is a critical component of diagnostic imaging. Quality patient care can only be achieved
when study results are conveyed in a timely fashion to those responsible for treatment decisions. An effective
method of communication should 1) promote optimal patient care and support the referring physician/health care provider in this endeavor, 2) be tailored to satisfy the need for timeliness, and 3) minimize the risk of communication errors.
NDI Radiologists Write Great Radiology Reports
NDI radiology reports effectively communicate their patient imaging findings and state their official interpretation of a patient imaging examination or procedure.
Radiology reports are a method of communication from NDI radiologists to general practitioners (GP) in the primary care setting.

2022 US Radiology Reading Service FAQs
Question: What Is A Radiology Over Read?
Answer: A radiology overread, also spelled or over-read or over read, is not a primary interpretation of an “inside study”. Overread studies are secondary radiology interpretations and reports provided by a specialized radiologist, usually at an “outside facility” upon request from a requesting physician or third party administrator.
Question: How Do I Get A Second Opinion From A Radiologist?
Answer: Getting a radiology second opinion on your imaging reports from NDI is a very easy process. Your treating physician or you can securely share your medical records with an NDI radiologist. You can get a second opinion on your imaging reports from an NDI radiologist if you are concerned about a potential misdiagnosis. A radiology misdiagnosis is a common but serious medical mistake.
Question: Can An NDI Radiologist Tell You Results?
Answer: NDI radiologists write reports for healthcare providers that order patient exams. They also write second opinion reports for individual patients, concerned family members, care givers and attorneys. NDI radiologist send reports to the person who ordered the radiological test. NDI radiologists deliver reports online to people that order a second opinion. Second opinion radiology interpretation fees start at $200. Many patients can now access their electronic health records and can read their radiology reports online.
Question: Does Medicare Pay For CPT 76140?
Answer: It should be noted that Medicare and many other payers do not reimburse for code 76140, as it has no relative value units assigned to it because it does not reflect a specific exam. Also, code 76140 should be used if the payer specifically recognizes and requests the use of this code for second interpretations. In general, when reporting 76140, the physician is not concurrently providing an E/M face-to-face service to the patient.
Question: What Is A Radiology Reading Room?
Answer: Early radiology reading rooms existed in basements or dark corners where radiologists could view their films against a collection of light boxes with little concern for the optimal work environment. An optimally designed reading room separates the consultation activities from the image interpretation tasks so that radiologists can choose the environment best suited to the task.
Question: What Do Radiologists Read?
Answer: NDI US board certified radiologists read imaging scans and results from standard X-rays, CT scans, nuclear medicine imaging tests, MRI scans, musculoskeletal (MSK) X-rays, chest x-rays, echocardiograms, fluoroscopic studies, mammograms and ultrasound imaging tests. NDI radiologists are physicians that read tests that take pictures or images of parts of the body. NDI radiologists interpret diagnostic imaging tests and they write reports for healthcare providers and individual patients in the form of second opinions.
