Doctors

What is the difference between a specialist and an Ultraspecialista?

A specialist is a doctor specialised in a medical branch. An Ultraspecialista is a specialist that dedicates his life to a single pathology of a medical branch. For example, an Oncologist is a doctor specialised in cancer in general, while an Ultraspecialista treats and researches only some tumours and this allows him to have an in-depth knowledge of those particular tumours.

How are the Ultraspecialisti selected?

A scientific committee selects the Ultraspecialisti on our platform based on strict criteria. To know more, visit our page Medical experts.

There are many medical experts for my pathology. How do I choose the one best for me?

You can choose based on their CV or the city or hospital facility in which the specialist operates.

Will the selected Ultraspecialista be available to follow my treatment?

Yes, you can ask our Ultraspecialista if he can follow your treatment in the hospital facility in which he operates.

What do I need to complete my consultation request?

You need a good internet connection, an email address, your tests and medical reports in a digital format (you can take a picture or scan them), a credit card or a PayPal account for the payment.

What medical tests can I send to the specialist?

Our platform was designed to transmit heavy files. You can send medical reports in pdf or jpeg format, medical images, DICOM files, CT scans, MR, etc.

What documents do I need to upload on the platform?

Medical images such as CTscans, MR images, PET and other images require a longer time to upload and therefore should be uploaded only if the doctor requires it.

How can I digitalize my medical reports and tests?

You can digitalize your documents by scanning them or by taking a legible and high definition picture using a camera, smartphone, tablet, etc.

Can I send my documents in a paper format via mail or fax?

It may be caused by a crash of the browser that does not depend on our platform. Try restarting your browser (Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc.) or use a different browser. If the problem persists contact us on info@ultraspecialisti.com.

The upload of images is slow.

The speed with which your files are uploaded depends on your Internet connection. If you have a fast Internet connection, you should have no problem uploading large files. Ultraspecialisti has the most advanced and innovative technology in the transmission of files but we cannot change the quality of your Internet connection.

I have to upload a DVD of images but I have a slow Internet connection.

If you have the possibility to use a fast Internet connection, the uploading of DICOM files should not require more than a few minutes. If you cannot find a fast internet connection: attach your computer directly to the modem, close all other windows on the browser, disconnect other devices such as smartphone or tablet, upload files at times of day when the least number of people are connected to the internet.

If you are still unable to upload your files contact us at info@ultraspecialisti.com
