About Us

Established in 2003, R. W. Barnett Radiology, PLLC is a diagnostic teleradiology imaging interpretation service located in Montgomery, AL. We are a USA-based, physician-owned, service. Our main purpose is to provide high quality teleradiology diagnostic imaging interpretation services, and through our advanced online technology, alleviate the shortage of qualified radiologists.  Our radiologists have had extensive training in multiple diagnostic subspecialties. 

Our advanced technology utilizes a high tech digital, HIPAA compliant, PACs computer system. We provide diagnostic interpretations for medical organizations located throughout several states, including Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, Louisiana, and North Carolina. If there is interest in utilizing our services within other states, licensure in those states can be considered. 

Diagnostic teleradiology is an ancillary service of invaluable proportions. In Teleradiology, patient images are transferred electronically from one location to another for the purpose of obtaining professional, specialized interpretation of the images to assist the referring doctor in diagnosing illness or injury.  This is particularly important when a sub-specialist radiologist interpretation is needed, and access to these radiologists is limited. 

Our Teleradiology system utilizes standard network technologies that allow viewing on your electronic devices.  Our services allow medical organizations access to online images and reports 24 hours a day. We also provide overflow read assistance to groups that prefer teleradiology over the expense of hiring another radiologist. We offer quick turn-a-round time in report generation, which is key to better patient care.
