Whether in human health or veterinarian care, this summary of the identified condition and diagnosis is a critical communication tool between the radiologist and the treating physician or patient. While radiology reports are traditionally comprised of text, reports with key images improve communication by providing a new layer of depth and understanding for physicians and their patients.
It doesn’t matter if you are a Referring Physician or an Imaging Center, a Referring Physician Portal could help clean up and speed up your workflow.
