Abstract


Background: Teleradiology is the computerized conveyance of radiological images of patients like x-ray digital radiography, Computed tomography (CT), Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Ultrasound imaging (USI), and Atomic medication imaging (AMI) pictures starting with one spot then onto the next with the end goal of translation and counsellor.

Methods: A prospective, comparative, questionnaire-based investigation was carried out in the Department of Radiological Imaging Techniques. A validated questionnaire was circulated among undergraduate and postgraduate Radiography students in the college of paramedical sciences, Teerthanker Mahaveer University. The study incorporated multiple-choice questions (MCQs) identified with segment attributes (age, sex), scholastic capability, and Information on Teleradiology, PACS, and DICOM.

Results: Out of the total of 157 participants 142 (90.44%) filled the questionnaire which was undergraduate and postgraduate students of Radiological and Imaging Techniques filled questionnaire. To assess knowledge about teleradiology, PACS, and DICOM which they gain during theory classes and from hospital postings. There were 89 (62.7%) males and 53 (37.3%) females with the age ranging from 18 to 28, mean of 23 years. The statistical data of all participants gave the correct answer is 85.48% we can say the level of knowledge and awareness of radiography students towards advancement in the era is very good.

Conclusions: Teleradiology is the computerized conveyance of radiological images of patients, and pictures starting with one spot then onto the next with the end goal of translation and counselling. The finding in this study indicates that radiography students have optimum knowledge with 85.48%.
