Institute of Computer Science of Masaryk University is working on the field of supporting medicine multimedia data transport archiving and processing more than ten years. Since first steps like transport of ultrasound and CT images across private fibre optics network these activities have grown up to regional PACS archive. Today more and more hospitals are participating on this project know under the name MediMed. For deployment of MediMed to some remote locations and especially to residence users (medicine specialists) it was necessary to utilise wireless and microwave technologies. Experiences with usage of wireless technology for delivery of medicine picture data are described in this paper.
