Daytime Teleradiology Company Expands to 10 States

August 29, 2012 — A new, daytime teleradiology company targeting urgent care, independent diagnostic testing facilities (IDTFs), mobile medical and physician offices is now serving clients in 10 states, is licensed in 20 and plans to expand with the growth of its customers. Teleradiology Specialists keeps overhead costs low and extends the savings to every customer while employing highly qualified radiologists who are available to read a wide variety of studies all day. The company can deliver reports to secure patient and physician URLs as well as mobile devices like iPads.

“With such a diverse mix of client sites, we are seeing a much wider variety of studies than we saw in overnight teleradiology,” said David Cohen, M.D., founder and president of Teleradiology Specialists. “In addition to subspecialty computed tomography (CTs) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) [scans], we are reading X-rays and ultrasound studies for urgent care companies, dental CTs in support of implants and mammograms from women’s imaging centers.”

Cohen was previously the chief medical officer of a national teleradiology practice and has been practicing teleradiology for 10 years. Howard Reis recently joined the company as vice president, business development. Cohen and Reis previously worked together at Imaging On Call.
