T1 not enough for teleradiology

I was tempted to say, “fiber saves live” but I thought someone might accuse me of hyperbole – however folks at Medical Arts Radiology in New York credit the move from T1 to fiber for allowing them to make a diagnosis more quickly.

Here’s the quote from CED:

“In our experience, you cannot perform modern radiology with a T1 line. You have to have fiber, and that’s why we chose Optimum Lightpath,” said Pradeep Albert, CIO of Medical Arts Radiology. “We can view images taken from any of our six offices and read it anywhere we can access a PC or laptop. Our business depends on Optimum Lightpath. We love the product – it’s changed the way we do things.”
