Paper Abstract

Clinical trials have been conducted at several CT scanner sites that form an imaae transmission network in operation since June 1981. Network connection provides a special image reformatting service to aid CT diagnosis of difficult lumbar/cervical spine, petrous bone and orbit cases. Important side effects of the network service include improved scanner maintenance, higher patient throughput and scanner system utilization. The overall network concept is introduced, network products are illustrated, early results are discussed, and new directions are indicated.
