Even though considerable progresses have been made with communication technology, one of the more difficult problems facing in installing a comprehensive clinically effective Image Management and Communication (IMAC) system for a hospital is the communication problem. Most existing systems are based on Ethernet or Token-ring net. Some of the newer systems are being installed using FDDL. All these systems have inherent problems like communication speed, control of bandwidth usage, or/and poor performance under heavy traffic. In order to overcome these difficulties, we are designing a complete IMAC system based on a novel network known as TeraNet, being developed at Center for Telecommunication Research, Columbia University.
