MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual Radiologic (vRad), a technology-enabled national radiology practice, has announced a premier radiology partnership with ICON Medical Imaging (ICON), the medical imaging division of ICON plc.

ICON Medical Imaging provides medical imaging-based product development services to the pharmaceutical biotechnology and medical device industries. The partnership with vRad will enable ICON Medical Imaging to access the breadth and depth of vRad's subspecialty expertise and to obtain high-quality interpretations provided by vRad's fellowship-trained radiologists.

"The extensive subspecialty expertise and broad experience of the vRad radiologists make this partnership a natural fit for ICON," said Ted Gastineau, President, ICON Medical Imaging. "As a partner, vRad offers us access to radiologists covering all subspecialties who also have the benefit of a very impressive body of clinical work, with documented quality."
