Hairline fractures and Teleradiology
I am not sure if this has been reported before but problem with online reporting is not with complex disorders or with syndromes as our team compromises of senior rads and they are well versed with these situations. Problem possibly is with hairline fractures.
Usually we get no clinical information at all especially in orthopaedic plain films let alone any information on point of tenderness, so we are likely to miss some of the hairline injuries and as soon as we miss any findings we being a teleradiology company cases get bounced back to us very fast and referring physicians think we missed a simple HAIRLINE FRACTURE!
Do you also have similar experiences with reading plain orthropedic films without history?
