Teleradiology refers to the process of transferring (therefore both transmitting and receiving) medical images to and from distant locations using electronically - originally via the telephone network but now more generally by computer networks. When the telephone network was used this often involved the use of a special link such as a leased line, ADSL, ISDN, or similar because more bandwidth was needed to transmit high-resolution images than required for standard voice telephone calls.

Teleradiology is not a speciality within medicine but it is an increasingly important process because technology is used to offer more flexible medical consultation and treatment arrangements to patients. Teleradiology is also important for the cost-effectiveness of medical provisions because it can enable the most efficient use of personnel, saving the time and costs associated with moving medical experts from place to place unecessarily.

Note that teleradiology is related to radiology.
