National Diagnostic Imaging is a national radiology services company that provides remote radiology interpretations and on-site interpretations. Our teleradiologists provide after-hours and overflow coverage across all subspecialties and modalities. NDI radiologists are U.S. based, board certified and subspecialty trained.
NDI is a full-service provider of professional radiology services including teleradiology setup, on-site radiology services, IT services and radiology department support. The easiest way to get access to teleradiology services in the United States is to call National Diagnostic Imaging at 1-800-950-5257 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the US, private for-profit companies such as National Diagnostic Imaging, offer national teleradiology services (i.e., professional interpretation of radiologic studies of all types by American Board of Radiology certified radiologists).
NDI’s initial focus for teleradiology was for partial, night (nighthawk) and vacation coverage of radiologic studies. Now the NDI teleradiology company provides full-time around-the-clock radiology coverage.
NDI’s teleradiology reporting services currently provide 24/7/365 coverage for small hospitals, clinics, diagnostic imaging centers, emergency rooms, specialty medical practices and urgent care centers. The US teleradiology provider also offers subspecialty radiologic coverage that is not available at smaller medical clinics and centers.
Radiology is the medical discipline that uses medical imaging to diagnose diseases and guide their treatment, within the bodies of humans and other animals. Radiology can be divided into several different fields including breast imaging, cardiovascular radiology, emergency radiology, musculoskeletal radiology and neuroradiology.
On-Site Radiology and Interpretation Services
NDI provides on-site radiologic services and information technology integration upon request. Our IT staff is available to assist imaging centers and health care facilities at their physical location.
Our technicians can help with PACS and RIS integration and use. We provide remote and on-site technology consultations, robust data archiving, imaging protocol assistance and medical imaging accreditation support.
We exchange information with our customers quickly for ‘STAT Reads” and when we discover critical results and findings. The radiologists at NDI can perform both preliminary and final interpretations on-site. We also specialize in handling preliminary night interpretations.
NDI radiologists are licensed to practice medicine within the states in which NDI provides remote radiology interpretation services. NDI radiologists are credentialed where remote interpretive readings (preliminary and/or final authenticated reports) are rendered.
Changing Teleradiology Providers
If your radiology practice is considering changing providers or is reevaluating your current teleradiology services, we invite you to request a proposal from NDI. We may be able to offer you a better prices while simultaneously providing your organization with better quality service.
While we are not as large as some of the other national teleradiology companies and on-site radiology practices such as vRad, RadNet’s Imaging On-Call (IOC), ONRAD, StatRad, Envision Healthcare, Radiology Partners, Radisphere and Aris Radiology, we are more affordable, responsive and provide a higher degree of customer service.
NDI frequently takes over hospital contracts due to reduced reimbursements. NDI have gained considerable market share because our teleradiologists are fast, more than capable and extremely thorough. Our staff provides timely communication between the reading radiologist and the referring physician.
If your radiology group or hospital is considering utilizing a radiology outsourcing company for remote interpretations or any form of coverage, contact NDI to request a teleradiology proposal.
