Teleradiology is the practice of transmitting the different radiological reports generated via X-rays, CT-scan and MRI from one part of the world to the another or one location to the other to get the consultation and interpretation from the different expert radiologists. In veterinary, it was first commercially available in the early 90s. Previously it was poorly developed due to the limited internet speed and lack of essential software but currently, the practice of teleradiology in veterinary medicine has become universal due to proper broadband connection, availability of image compression, PACS and DICOM software. This review aims to summarize the goals, applications, transmission, method of image acquisition and digitalization, types of teleradiology, its legal issues and market in veterinary medicine.
