CTS provides leading edge remote radiology (teleradiology) technology to hospitals and practices, on-call 24 hours a day, 7days a week. CTS connects clients with a strong teleradiology network, providing access to the best Canadian board-certified radiologists.

CTS offers interpretations of urgent and elective examinations by board certified consultant radiologists. The Company specializes in MRI, CT, PET, US, NM, MAMMO, X-Ray and BMD modalities. Preliminary interpretations are available within an average of an hour. The CTS operation centre co-ordinates hospitals and radiologists 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

CTS receives diagnostic scans from hospitals and clinics, and transmits them to approved, certified radiologists, who are typically located in larger urban centres. The radiologists read the scans and review the audio information, prepare a medical report, and transmit the reports to the hospitals and clinics. The benefit of the CTS system of services is to allow hospitals and clinics access to radiologists. There is an estimated labor shortage of radiologists. The benefits to the radiologists that work with CTS include but are not limited to; an ability to make additional income, flexibility to work from home as opposed to being "locked" in a room in the hospital, and an ability to spend time with their families. This service system also helps hospitals and clinics in remote locations, where it is difficult to hire skilled radiologists, and access professional, skilled radiology staff.

CTS has been providing teleradiology services to North America since 2005.

CTS is looking to expand its client roster in Canada, the U.S., and around the world.

CTS services include;

  • Full PACS Networking and Compatibility *
  • Certified Radiologists based in North America and are vetted by the hospital
  • 24 Hour Turnaround on Non-emergency Reports
  • 1 Hour Turnaround on Emergency Verbal STAT Reports
  • References from Client Public Hospitals and Clinics on request

* The Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) offers Remote Teleradiology Services to PACS-based hospitals and clinics.

Compressed scanned images are transmitted to the CTS Data Centre, including audio dictation, and stored in the PCAS system. Orders and reports are generated automatically. The scanned images are read, and reports transcribed and completed. The system has the ability to update reports. Certified Radiologists sign-off on the transcribed final report.

CTS adheres to all standards and Medical Insurance Plans (Ontario and PHIPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act) guidelines.

The keys to success in the diagnostic imaging industry are providing quick access to services, competitive prices, a patient-friendly environment and establishing good working relationships with area physicians and family doctors.

In Canada, there is presently widespread public dissatisfaction with wait times for diagnostic imaging in public hospitals. Wait times run anywhere from four months to as much as 22 months. In response to this void in the public health care system, there are a number of private clinics presently operating in three Canadian provinces. The industry is projected to grow at a rate of more than 6% annually, for the next decade, based on a higher proportion of older persons, due to the aging of the baby boomer generation.
