The implementation of teleradiology is spreading throughout the U.S. military. In an effort to contain cost, the Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support (MDIS) Office at the Medical Advanced Technology Management Office (MATMO), Fort Detrick, Maryland, implemented an 'off- the-shelf' DICOM teleradiology system by which computed radiography (CR) images acquired at Hickam Air Force Base (AFB), Hawaii, can be transmitted electronically over a T-1 telecommunications line to Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC), Hawaii. The goal was to provide a teleradiology system to the military services which extends the expertise and training of physicians to remote sites, while realizing cost savings through off-the-shelf DICOM technology. The TAMC teleradiology hub equipment was provided to support soft copy diagnostic reading. The Army X-Ray ISO-Shelter along with the teleradiology equipment allows Hickam AFB to maintain radiology services during an on-going construction project. This poster presents the results of a successful off-the-shelf DICOM teleradiology implementation.
