Teleradiology and Network Strategies
A teleradiology system is a unique combination of digital data networks and computer systems with the purpose of electronic transmission of radiographic images from one site to another. These systems can be either wide area networks (WAN) designed to transmit radiographic images over large distances (usually greater than 2 KM) or local area networks (LAN) designed to communicate with images over shorter distances (usually less than or equal to 2 KM). This paper discusses the strategies used to implement teleradiology systems at two University Medical Centers.
