Teleradiology is a subset of radiology that aims to deliver radiology and consultation services by using improved communication and information tools for exchanging the necessary information needed for accurate diagnosis, treatment, and follow-ups. Today, radiology amounts to a huge expenditure in the overall healthcare budget. However, the shortage of radiologists while the number of diagnostic radiology tests increases has created a huge opportunity for growth of teleradiology firms across the globe. Presently, teleradiology is showcasing accelerated growth in the areas of image processing and communication tools and technologies, which has upped its chances of earning massive revenues in the coming few years.

Emergence of Cloud Computing Propels Global Teleradiology Market
The main growth driver for the global teleradiology market is the evolution of cloud computing. This technology has allowed access to the image data as per the norms suggested by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations. Furthermore, cloud computing has also reduced the infrastructural costs, as the service is rendered on the basis of pay-per-use with minimal costs of start-up infrastructure.

Capital-intensive Nature of Equipment Restraints Market Growth
Some of the major restraints on the global teleradiology market are the expensive nature of the initial setup and installation of imaging equipment and lack of broadband availability in remote locations. Recovering these costs depends on the number of scans made per day, which is a huge gamble for many players. Therefore, the problem of reconciling high costs with the low volume of scans is a huge restraint for the overall market.
