May 10, 2018 — Teleradiology company DocPanel announced a partnership with the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine Department of Radiology that will give consumers access to Keck's 60 radiology subspecialists. DocPanel enables imaging centers to use USC experts who are focused on specific areas of the body, therefore providing unique perspective and accurate insights.

Currently, there is a $15 billion radiology reading market; however, it is ripe with challenges such as radiology shortages, high error rates, growing costs and more.

Serving as an online marketplace for patients seeking accurate diagnostic interpretations, DocPanel connects consumers to a large community of subspecialty radiologists around the world, and now including USC. Since launch less than a year ago, DocPanel has brought on hundreds of radiologists in 42 states across all specialties.

USC's network includes experts in many areas of radiology, including but not limited to:

  • Body imaging abdominal imaging;
  • Breast imaging;
  • Cardiothoracic imaging;
  • Cardiovascular;
  • Chest;
  • Computed tomography (CT);
  • Emergency;
  • Genitourinary;
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI);
  • Musculosketal;
  • Neuroradiology;
  • Nuclear;
  • Pediatric;
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)-CT;
  • Ultrasound;
  • Vascular;
  • Women's imaging; and
  • X-ray

"Our partnership with DocPanel opens up a whole new way for our subspecialty radiologists to reach patients who may be struggling to find clarity," said Edward G. Grant M.D., FACR, professor and chairman, Department of Radiology at USC-Keck School of Medicine. "We are able to put patients at ease by providing accurate diagnoses. Division chiefs directly handle many cases, along with their hand-picked teams, ensuring patients receive reliable radiology reads, consultations and second opinions."

DocPanel offers a new flexible model that can co-exist, supplement or replace existing models of radiology. The company said this can help overcome challenges related to errors, high costs, staff shortages and more.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
