Whether it is to reduce your workload or handle emergency cases in as short a time as possible, our professional Teleradiologists ensure that all your requirements are met promptly. We specialize in providing our expert services for niche radiology subject matters, as well as provide on-time consultation to clinicians looking for an expert second opinion.
Preliminary Afterhours Services
If you require expert radiologist opinion and preliminary reads in a short time, then our services are ideal for you.

All reports are sent in a format of your choice, and through a medium you prefer.
Certified Reporting Services
Our certified afterhours reporting services are more extensive and help you reduce your existing workload, while providing you with an option to gather expert radiologist opinion at cost-effective prices. Our certified reporting services consists of two phases:
Phase 1 wherein medical images are read by a junior radiologist followed by a senior one who verifies the read, and Phase 2, where the readings are verified and cross-checked by a board certified radiologist who then signs off on the same.
Clinical Trials Afterhours Services
More often than not, the longest period of the drug development cycle are the clinical trials. Not only are clinical trials regulated heavily which causes frequent delays, but radiology reports for thousands of patients also take substantial time to be generated. Our services are therefore ideal for pharmaceutical companies and biotech enterprises who want to receive expertly read radiology reports in as short a time as possible.

Auditing and reviewing radiology reports is always a chore for healthcare enterprises. Our services are therefore ideal for them and help to streamline their workflow. These services include -
