Teleradiology is a method used to transmit medical radiological images such as x-rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another location. The purpose of this transmission of medical images is to enable easy viewing and interpretation for diagnostic or consultation by a radiologist. The process of teleradiology involves an image sending station, a receiving image station, and a transmission network that has high quality screen, which has been cleared for clinical purposes. Teleradiology is a means for collaboration of medical professionals, despite their location. Increasing demand for second opinion for medical treatments is expected to boost growth of the market for teleradiology.

Teleradiology is widely used in application such as telediagnosis, telemonitoring, picture archiving and communication system (PACS), and teleconsultation. This increases the efficiency of the radiologist carrying out the surgery. Ultrasound is one of the most promising imaging technology in teleradiology, which is widely being used for diagnosing medical aliments in women.  Ultrasound helps in tracking and visualization of the development stages of fetus during pregnancy. This in turn increases growth of the teleradiology market.

Rising prevalence of chronic diseases to boost market growth

Rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as breast cancer, cellulitis, and osteomyelitis and the rising number of emergence cases in rural areas, which experiences the lack of skilled professional, are increasing demand for teleradiology services. Furthermore, rising expenditure on healthcare, improving healthcare infrastructure, and widening network of high-speed broadband services are expected to boost growth of the global market.

North America and Europe are expected to account for high market share, followed by Asia Pacific due to the rampant advancements in technology and high disposable income among the populace in the region. Increasing number of well-equipped healthcare centers and novel approaches to medicine are expected to fuel growth of the teleradiology market. Increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer is creating a highly conducive environment for growth of the teleradiology market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2012, around 14 million cases of cancer were reported worldwide, leading to around 8.8 million deaths in 2015.
