Riverside, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
Jesse Salen, the VP of Sales and Technology at Online Radiology Medical Group, Inc., announced last week, telemammography services are now available to its patients. According to Mr. Salen, "We opted to expand our slate of services with the intention of contributing to improving survival rates among breast cancer patients."
It is widely known that early detection through mammography is the most effective method of improving survival rates for breast cancer, a leading cause of death among women. Telemammography is the electronic transmission of digitized mammograms and provides greater efficiency in the area of breast imaging and interpretation. It significantly improves breast cancer screening by delivering critical medical expertise that is both timely and accurate.
A 2008 study conducted at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, confirmed that the transmission and interpretation of digital mammography exams through high-speed cable Internet access is feasible, safe, reliable, and cost-effective.
Over the past several years, the number of mammography facilities operating in the US has dropped, causing delays of up to 5 months for women's screening services in some areas. Online Radiology seeks to combat this problem through telemammography which will immediately open up access to mammography experts around the country.
Online Radiology Medical Group, Inc., in conjunction with its remote radiology partners, is a full-service teleradiology group offering remote preliminary and final interpretations of CT, NM, MRI, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, diagnostic X-ray, mammography screening, and now, telemammography. The Company is JCAHO accredited and offers services throughout the U.S., 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
