Many emergency rooms do not offer full-time coverage by a radiologist. Teleradiology can enable a radiologist to offer services to a number of emergency rooms. This allows more timely interpretation of emergency room studies and improved patient care. In our clinical trial, we found several problem areas and developed ways to improve our diagnostic accuracy. Since the resolution of transmitted images is less than that of film, a review of the original films at some later time is needed.
