ONRAD is a U.S.-based, physician-owned teleradiology service provider. As a partner, the ONRAD team learns the unique requirements of each customer and develops a customized teleradiology service solution. Read on for answers to some frequently asked questions about our teleradiology service:
Which teleradiology service do I need?
Preliminary Teleradiology Reports answer a specific medical question (for example, whether or not a certain condition is present), and are not considered billable. The on-site radiologist must re-read the study and sign a more complete report, which is considered billable. Final Teleradiology Reports provide a complete interpretation of the patient’s exam, in which all relevant findings are included. Final Reports are considered billable.
A teleradiology service that includes final reports is the most cost effective. When radiologists come to work in the morning, they can begin working with new patients instead of devoting additional time re-reading studies from the previous night. Teleradiology service customers may also find that they have additional time to spend with their patients. In many cases, final reports cost only about 10% more than preliminary reports.

ONRAD’s QA program is managed by the Quality Assurance Committee, which is made up of Dr. Alix Vincent, Chief Medical Officer and Dr. Samuel Salen, Chairman of ONRAD Inc., as well as five other members that rotate on a yearly basis.
