Teleradiology Solutions (TRS) collaborates with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to offer remote ‘3D post-processing services’
· MGH to make available proprietary 3D protocols to TRS
· TRS investment of USD $300,000 includes new Bangalore based facility manned by 3D-trained radiologists to offer 24-hour and emergency 3D services
· Collaboration to open new patient care opportunities across leading hospitals in India, Asia and Africa
Bangalore, 17 September 2016: Teleradiology Solutions (TRS), India’s pioneering tele-diagnostic delivery company, today announced a collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, one of the top-ranked hospitals in the United States, to offer 3D post-processing services. TRS has invested USD $300,000 in a 3D Imaging Lab facility in Bangalore, which will be manned by a specialised team 3D-trained radiologists. The 3D images will enable physicians at the MGH to better understand patients’ disease processes and develop treatment and intervention plans in a more timely way. The day-night time difference between the US and India creates an ideal situation for the specialized 24-hour service, especially in emergency settings.
This strategic collaboration will open up new patient care opportunities in India as well as across Asia, Africa and other parts of the world as the technology and 3D post-processing services can be offered to other hospitals.
Speaking about the collaboration, Dr. Arjun Kalyanpur, Founder and CEO of Teleradiology Solutions said, “At TRS we consistently strive to re-invent the healthcare landscape in India. As the first company to offer teleradiology in India, we have now embarked upon a relationship with MGH, one of the most prestigious hospitals in the world and the largest teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, to offer 3D post-processing services. This project to us strengthens our standing within the health-tech industry and speaks volumes of our level of expertise not just in radiology but also in the stability of our entire ecosystem in terms of software, reading structures and the calibre of our radiologists.’’
He further added, “There has been increasing deployment and utilization of high-end CT and MRI scan equipment globally as well as in India, and such high resolution imaging requires effective 3D post-processing for its benefits to be most optimally realized. As an example, 3D image post-processing of aneurysms and vessel blockages that may potentially result in life threatening complications can greatly facilitate their diagnosis, treatment and subsequent follow-up of such conditions, thereby benefiting treating physicians and impacting patients.”
Dr. Gordon J Harris, Director, 3D Imaging Service, Massachusetts General Hospital said, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with TRS to enhance the diagnostic capabilities and timeliness of information that can help improve lives for patients. We hope that access to this technology can expand to providers in South Asia, as high-quality post-processing 3D imaging could have a significant impact on care – particularly emergency and trauma care – across the region.”
