Author Affiliations +
Teleradiology is being implemented in the U.S. military. Soft-copy reading of computed radiology (CR) images and film-digitizer (FD) images are becoming a common practice. The Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support (MDIS) Office at the Medical Advanced Technology Management Office (MATMO), Fort Detrick, Maryland, installed an 'off-the-shelf' DICOM teleradiology system by which CR images and FD images acquired at Hickam Air Force Base (AFB), Hawaii, are transmitted electronically over a T-1 telecommunications line to Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC), Hawaii. The goal was to provide a diagnostic quality teleradiology system to the military services to extend the expertise and training of physicians to remote sites. In order to guarantee a diagnostic quality image throughout the system, a rigid set of quality control standards had to be designed and implemented. This poster presents the results of a successful teleradiology implementation where quality control is maintained throughout the imaging chain.
