Image byte array

In the code below to load an image to a datarow i would like to understand why i need create a memory stream and then convert to byte array.
 Dim ms As System.IO.MemoryStream = New System.IO.MemoryStream
                PicLogotipo.Image.Save(ms, PicLogo.Image.RawFormat)
                datarow1("Logo") = ms.ToArray

what are you doing with the datarow/table? I have seen situation where it was the only way to provide image. My scenario was with Crystal Reports.

ReadAllBytes is implemented in an obvious way. It uses the using-statement on a FileStream. Then it loops through the file and puts the bytes into an array.
