teleradiography

 [tel″ĕ-ra″de-og´rah-fe]
1. a telehealth technique consisting of electronic transmission of radiographic images.
2. radiography with the radiation source about 2 meters from the subject, more nearly securing parallelism of the rays and minimizing distortion.

tel·e·ra·di·og·ra·phy

(tel'ĕ-rā'dē-og'ră-fē),
Radiography with the x-ray tube positioned about 2 m from the film thereby securing practical parallelism of the x-rays to minimize geometric distortion; the standard configuration for chest radiography. Compare: air-gap technique.
Synonym(s): teleroentgenography
[G. tēle, distant, + radiography]

/tele·ra·di·og·ra·phy/ (-ra″de-og´rah-fe)
1. interpretation of images transmitted over telephone lines or by satellite.
2. radiography with the radiation source 6.5 to 7 feet from the subject to maximize the parallelism of the rays and minimize distortion.

n Radiography at a longer distance than is usually used (6 feet, or 1.8 m).

teleradiography

radiography with the x-ray tube located approximately 6 ft away from the plate in order to more nearly secure parallelism of the rays.
