    This article is about the current situation of the distribution and exchange of medical images. Today PACS is familiar to medical facilities and it is widely used system in radiology departments, but the “teleradiology” term still has difficulties with interpretation. When digital medical images are printing on a film and then transfer to other specialists, this way of exchange becomes more and more expensive and inefficient. That’s why the problem of acquisition, dis- tribution and getting access to the results of the diagnostic studies still actual. Another problem is the lack of qualified radiologists in the regions of Russia, due to the uneven population density; competent specialists are concentrated in regional centers. Therefore performing of urgent remote consultation is an actual problem too. In this article have been defined perspectives of advancement of the teleradiological systems, that began to appear due to PACS implementa- tion in radiology departments. The purpose of this scientific research is to develop the methods of teleradiology systems organization for consultations using PACS and telemedicine networks created in the regions. Factors influencing the quality of teleradiology consultations were discussed in article. Prerequisites for the development and implementation of such socially important systems, as a regional teleradiology system were defined

    In order to increase the availability and quality of specialized oncological care for the population of the Krasnodar Territory, the clinical and diagnostic Center of breast pathology was created. Teleradiology is one of the most efficient way for remote consultations. The article contains a description of the methodology for organizing the work of the Reference Center using telemedicine technologies via Radiology in-formation system of the Krasnodar Territory (RIS). DICOM modalities in diagnostic departments, local PACS in medical facilities are the part of regional RIS and also include 2 mammography units located in interterritorial oncological dispensaries. Every month new mammography exams are delivered to local PACS, which determines the relevance of their remote consultation. To fully operate the Reference Center as key participant in the system of teleradiology consultations, it is necessary to create a complex diagnostic information system in the regional clinical oncology dispensary. This is one of the results of the paper. The use of a unified system increases the efficiency of the information technologies in a remote mammographic screening and also allows standardizing and formalizing activity of a radiologist according to recommendation such as BIRADS, facilitates and speeds up the routine work of the radiologist, improves the quality of radiology interpretation, provides to radiologist effective help, using computeraided diagnostic
