Teleradiology has been part of my professional life for more than 10 years. As a board certified radiologist since 1993, and owner and operator of my own teleradiology practice and an imaging facility, I have been using teleradiology in my practice since 1998. Over the years, I have also designed and developed ways to improve teleradiology from software and operational perspectives.
In January when the disastrous earthquake in Haiti struck, I felt it was a good opportunity to apply my teleradiology experience. I couldn't leave my radiology practice and go to Haiti, so I started searching for another way help.
