Remote access of MRI Images using DICOM?
Posted on 2007-12-04
Calling all medical IT experts!
I have a medical client that I am setting up a network for. They have an MRI machine in one state, and doctors who would like the ability to view images from another clinic in another state.
How do I do this? I just learned a little bit about DICOM after speaking with Hitachi. I think I would need to network the two sites, and set up a DICOM machine in the off-site location that the MRI device can send images to.
OR, can I have the MRI machine send images to a local file server, then remotely transfer them, and view them with some kind of image viewing software?
Also, what type of monitor, workstation, and video adapter do you recommend for viewing MRI images of the brain?
