Network allows transmission of X-rays

Winston-Salem Journal | Network allows transmission of X-rays: "A patient receives a magnetic-resonance-imaging scan in a Mount Airy clinic run by Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. Within seconds, the scans are beamed to the medical center in Winston-Salem for analysis.
Sounds far-fetched? It isn't.
The medical center has installed a new data-transmission network for the center and its clinics, allowing doctors to transmit large amounts of medical-imaging data and saving patients from traveling long hours for diagnostic services, hospital officials said yesterday."
