Direct support to partner nations

The Teleradiology In Disaster Events and Second opinions (TIDES) project provides second opinion reporting to two nations in the Pacific - the Cook Islands and Samoa. The Cook Islands has no qualified radiologist presently and Samoa has only two, so this project provides tangible benefits on a regular basis both in clinical management and triaging patients to determine who can stay in the nation and who may require overseas support if available.

The focus of the TIDES project in 2022 was on supporting the Cook Islands as they installed their first CT scanner. The team of volunteer radiologists from Australia and New Zealand has been supporting the local radiographer-led department and in-patient physicians by providing second opinions on over 150 cases, the majority of which have been CT. The cases we have reviewed have been wide ranging including trauma, oncology, neurology, and musculoskeletal imaging.

The project provides a shared on-line rostering system to allow radiologists to allocate their preferred weeks and keep track throughout the year, and CPD certificates to recognize the pro bono hours spent reviewing cases.
