Teleradiology is the transmission of radiology images from one place to another for rapid emergency services to hospitals and several diagnostic centers. Teleradiology reduces the workload created due to large number of radiological scans AS compared to the number of radiologist present. The teleradiology also allows second opinion from experts. The technological advancements in the field of telemedicine are expected to cause a paradigm shift in the global teleradiology market.

Advancements in healthcare IT technologies, computing power, faster networks, and cheaper storage have revolutionized medical imaging over the recent past, thus allowing doctors to manage images, analyze, and interpret more easily and flexibly than in the last decade. Computerized medical imaging analysis is one such advancement that have been the central focus in medical imaging in last few years. Medical image analysis and interpretation has become a vital technology in high-tech applications in diagnostics and a ubiquitous part of modern medical imaging systems and the related processes of clinical diagnosis and intervention. Recent advances in machine learning, especially with regard to deep learning, are helping to identify, classify, and quantify patterns in medical images. The major drawback overall lack of cost-effective digital image handling systems, thus slowing down the adoption of the teleradiology market. Rapid advancement in the field of telecommunication has been an accelerating factor in the growth of the global teleradiology market.

Telemedicine was developed to bring healthcare services closer to the patient in urban as well as rural areas. Telemedicine services are grouped based on stored images such as teleradiology, tele histopathology, and tele dermatology, among others. Telemedicine services are available for most of the specialties. Remote consulting offers more options to patients and allow continued care at home where patient and physician play an active role in managing diseases. This service also facilitates shorter hospital stay, second line support for various chronic diseases and also solves the problems occurring due to shortage of physicians at remote areas
