US medical imaging provider, Medical Arts Radiology, will replace its TDM-based T1 lines with fiber-based Ethernet connection.
The new Ethernet connection will help improve response time to patients and doctors. Instead of waiting for faxes or getting film in the mail to conduct case work, every image is now digitized so the company can save money on personnel, time and paper.
A 1 Gpbs optical connection and a 20 Mbps connection will enable specialists to conduct tele-radiology so patient scans can be conducted anytime, from any office, even from a home Internet connection. Doctors could offer consults and second opinions to other hospitals around the country.
