The results of Nuclear Medicine organ imaging examinations are commonly displayed in pictorial form, either as transparencies, on x-ray film or 35 or 70 mm negatives, or as photographs usually utilizing Polaroid film. The ability to transmit this pictorial information to remote locations for consultation, interpretation and study is extremely useful in clinical diagnostic facilities, educational programs and research. Conventional television installations are prohibitively expensive for most of these applications. Furthermore, most organ images are stationary and do not require "real time" television. Slow scan or compressed video television systems are suitable for the transmission of stationary images over standard telephone circuits. This report relates our experience with two commercially available systems over a period of approximately three years in Nuclear Medicine diagnostic units in a University Health Science Center and a two hundred thirty bed private community hospital.
