Author Affiliations +
The U.S. military through the Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support (MDIS) system is installing teleradiology at multiple medical treatment facilities throughout the US and abroad. The goals are to improve patient care, maximize limited resources, and realize cost savings. This presentation reviews early experience with clinical use of the MDIS teleradiology configuration. Emphasis is on lessons learned in the areas of image quality, speed of image transmission, communication between sites, and the advantages of the MDIS two-way teleradiology configuration. The data is accumulated from the combined experience of the authors at multiple different sites within the continental US, Hawaii, and Korea.
