Image Loading in ASP.NET

The way I Load images read from a database is first reading the image as binary stream and eventually Response.BinaryWrite to a page and then load the page as the image src of the aspx page.

Is there a more efficient way of loading images rather first loading to a page and then laoding the page ?

byte[] imageBytes = GetImageDataFromSomewhere();

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg" // or whatever type the image is
Response.OutputStream.Write(imageBytes, 0, imageBytes.Length);
Response.End();
