Successful implementation of a teleradiology system in a clinical setting places stringent requirements on the system configuration and the performance of individual components. To evaluate possible approaches for high-quality teleradiology, a research system has been developed and is being tested at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. It consists of a high- performance laser-based film digitizer linked by fiber optics to a remote controlling node that can produce film replicas at a rate of one per minute. In this paper, the design considerations and performance of the research system are presented.
