Radiology untethered: 4G technology promises new levels of mobility

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Launch of the new fourth-generation network from cellular wireless companies will enable radiologists to upload and download images more than 10 times faster than they have been able to in the past. While wireless mobile applications for imaging are still a distinct minority, the faster speeds could open the door for preliminary reads or image demonstrations on smartphones and iPads. Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest wireless provider, could be the first out of the gate with their new fourth-generation (4G) network, launching in 38 U.S. markets by the end of the year. Users will be able to download 5 to 12 megabits per second and up upload between 2 and 5 Mbps.
