Using proprietary workflow software and a 24/7-staffed operations center, the company's radiologists provided over 2.2 million diagnostic interpretations last year with a monthly average emergent turnaround time of approximately 17 minutes, said the company. More than 615 customers supporting 1,000 medical facilities rely on Virtual Radiologic to provide preliminary, final or subspecialty diagnostic reports around-the-clock.
