Paper Abstract

Development in Picture Archiving and Communications Systems for medical imaging applications requires high resolution real-time image transmission. In this paper we describe a 500 MHz baseband analog fiber optic system capable of transmitting 2K x 2K medical images for remote viewing applications. The system uses an intensity modulated laser diode in the transmitter and a germanium avalanche photodiode in the receiver. The system was tested in a field trial.
