Boston-based Massachusetts General Hospital has selected Teleradiology Solutions to perform remote 3D post-processing services. According to the terms of the agreement, Teleradiology Solutions—one of the first teleradiology companies in the U.S. to receive Joint Commission accreditation—has invested in a new facility at which 3D-trained radiologists will provide routine and STAT 3D services.
Using Massachusetts General Hospital’s 3D protocols, the teleradiology provider will perform the agreed-upon post-processing services. Twenty-four hour staffing is now a possibility since the new facility can provide services for Massachusetts General Hospital, in addition to healthcare facilities around the world.
With access to the teleradiolgy provider’s 3D images, clinicians at Massachusetts General Hospital will gain a greater understanding of patients’ disease processes, while developing treatment and interventions more efficiently. Because of Teleradiology Solutions’ high-resolution CT and MRI scan equipment, effective 3D post-processing is available throughout the world.
“At [Teleradiology Solutions], we consistently strive to reinvent the healthcare landscape and we’re thrilled to embark upon a relationship with [Massachusetts General Hospital], one of the most prestigious hospitals in the world and the largest teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, to offer 3D post-processing services,” says Arjun Kalyanpur, MD, founder and CEO of Teleradiology Solutions.
Gordon Harris, PhD, director of 3D imaging for Massachusetts General Hospital, also spoke out about the deal, commenting: “Working with [Teleradiology Solutions’] radiologists, who are trained on [Massachusetts General Hospital] 3D protocols, for our overnight and weekend 3D coverage helps us deliver timely 3D imaging services with consistent 3D protocols and quality seven nights a week when we do not have 3D coverage onsite.”
