This updated teleradiology guidance sets out the standards for the sharing of imaging data and for outsourcing reporting outside of the local healthcare organisation. The adherence to standards helps to assure satisfactory outcomes for patients. The standards set out in this document are those that the RCR believes best serve the population of the UK and should be taken into account by UK healthcare providers and commissioners when considering outsourcing image reporting to teleradiology companies.

This is an update of the previous edition published in 2010.
