Milwaukee, Wis.-based Merge Healthcare, a medical imaging software and services provider, has introduced a new teleradiology software application and a consulting service utilizing offshore radiologists.

The company says Consult PreReads provides a preliminary report of a medical imaging study (prepared and revised by offshore radiologists) producing a detailed report that a U.S. radiologist may consult and utilize in preparing the final diagnostic report. The report includes references to prior studies, relevant patient clinical information or data requested in the radiology order, and measurements of relevant and incidental pathology and associated key images.

Merge says it plans to begin offering the Merge TeleRead application and Consult PreRead service in the first quarter of 2008.
