NIOSH-Certified B Reader Services From National Diagnostic Imaging

National Diagnostic Imaging provides teleradiology services to physicians, coal workers, asbestos medical surveillance programs, insurance companies, attorneys, industry-sponsored medical screening organizations and medical organizations that are concerned with occupational respiratory diseases. The “B” readers at NDI are radiologists that are certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as demonstrating proficiency in classifying radiographs of the pneumoconioses.

Classifying And Detecting Occupational Lung Diseases

Chest radiographic imaging is a widely applied and important tool for assessing lung health in workers exposed to dusts capable of producing pneumoconiosis and other diseases.  Pneumoconiosis includes asbestosis, silicosis and coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (CWP). CWP is sometimes called “Black Lung Disease”. Silicosis is a disease caused by inhaling respirable silica dust. Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers.  We offer consulting services and reviews of chest radiographs or CT scans for the presence of occupational lung disease.

We utilize chest radiographs, teleradiology, digitally-acquired chest radiographs, x-rays, CT scans and digital imaging to classify, recognize and detect signs of occupational lung disease, interstitial lung disease, pneumoconiosis/occupational disease, illnesses relating to asbestos silica exposure, silicosis and asbestosis.
