By staff writers

September 3, 2020 -- VIDI, the leading private radiology group in France, on 2 September announced the launch of its teleradiology service, TéléVidi, which aims to offer local teleradiology solutions to medical centers across the country.

The network, which comprises 850 radiologists and 270 imaging centers across the country, has partnered with CTM Group, the latter specializing in digital organizational solutions for the medical community.

Local VIDI radiologists will offer face-to-face locum services, supported by the network's other radiologists where necessary, the imaging group stated, adding that its members represented the entire range of imaging and organ subspecialties.

Different types of institutions -- such as university hospitals, regional cancer centers, and private clinics -- will be able to outsource their image management and interpretation, both temporarily and permanently, according to Dr. Nicolas Puech, medical director of TéléVidi. He said that this dedicated locum intervention would allow the continuation of replacement services and coverage of busy periods, while ensuring emergency care and the management of urgent requests.
