Radiology Practise-which way to go?

Now with times moving fast ahead there is this dilemma all the time. On one end is the fast evolving radiology practise wherein you report your cases based on the clinical details provided sitting remotely via teleradiology, which looks like the only logical way to increase your output and meet the increasing shortage of radiologists. On the other hand every few days now i have a feeling it is much better for your practise to talk to patient directly, convey the result to him so that he understands what you have written and limitations of the same. Same applies to the talking to referring physicians but where is the time and it takes productivity for ride. May be we will see a balance in times to come.

Dear Sir,
I was impressed by your rational comment on the issue.I feel teleradiology is the answer for shortage of radiologists;talking to the patient as well as the referring doctor brings rationality to the radiology report and a balance of the two is absolutely essential for rational and good radiology practise. many of the practitioners donot know or appreciate the limitations of a modality and we cannot escape from the responsibility of sharing our knowledge with those who offcourse are keen to know the utility and limitations of each radiological modality. Many practitioners want a one stop shop in radiology which is not always so and it often leaves the patient discontent with the radiology department.
