It’s official: fatigue affects results in teleradiology

We all know the challenges of our profession.

We hold people’s lives in our hands every day, and clinical accuracy and excellence are vital in everything we do – there is too much at stake for it to be any other way.

That’s why TMC has always attached such great importance to its procedures, its training, its technology and its committed approach to double readings. It’s what our clients and our patients expect from us.

However, we also know that fatigue can be a great contributor to poor diagnostic results, something which is unacceptable in our line of work. So, we were interested to read a recent article published by Diagnostic Imaging Europe, which confirms this, based on a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

In the DI Europe article, they reported that radiologists are more fatigued and provide worse diagnostic performances following overnight shifts (ONS). This is something that we are well aware of and it is one of the reasons that TMC offers European radiologists the chance to relocate to Australia, where they can report on overnight cases in Europe during local daytime hours.

This leads to demonstrable improvements in accuracy and efficiency of readings using TMC’s leading edge technology and remote reporting systems. It also leaves plenty of opportunities to enjoy the lifestyle benefits of life down under, including weekends at the beach, sunny barbecues and a fabulous relocation service that takes all the pain out of the process. What’s not to like?

So, if you fancy a change of life, helping European health services get the clinical results they deserve, while making the most of the life you deserve, simply check out the careers page on our website or contact us at careers@telemedicineclinic.com for information about available roles.
