Teleradiology at UVA
Serving Our Local Community
The University of Virginia Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging has over 20 years of experience in teleradiology services. The organizations we serve have included federally qualified health centers, urgent care facilities, critical access hospitals, the Department of Corrections, clinics and a standards-based national radiology group. Our clinical expertise is provided by physicians that have been fellowship-trained in the following subspecialties:
Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging
Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology
UVA Radiology and Medical Imaging becomes an extension of the groups with whom we work. We readily interpret all cases regardless of difficulty, allowing practices to grow with confidence in their radiology services.
“I am comforted by having the whole team of UVA sub-specialized radiologists on my staff. If I run into a difficult case by day, we simply send it to UVA and I know that our referring physicians will have their clinical question answered. Even though our hospital is very remote, we enjoy having the ‘Best of the Best’ on our team through UVA’s clinical expertise and comprehensive reports. This enhances our ability to provide optimal care for our patients, and I enjoy the extra subspecialty help from time-to-time.”

Our faculty conducts a robust, professional assessment of their practice and our peer review process exceeds requirements established by the American College of Radiology for accreditation. We randomly select sample “good catch” cases (and any discrepancies) performed by our radiologists and discuss in an open forum, regardless of origin. Physicians are thereby able to learn continuously, drawing upon the myriad of expertise within the department.
Joint Commission Accreditation
We can delegate our Joint Commission Accreditation to your organization, resulting in substantial time and cost savings.
