    Overview of use case for quickly transmitting large imaging files

    AT&T and Austin Cancer Center, are leveraging 5G for quickly transmitting large imaging files.

    MRI, CAT, or PET scans and other image machines are typically very large files, and often must be sent to a specialist for review. When the network is low on bandwidth, the transmission can take a long time or not send successfully. This means the patient waits even longer for treatment and providers can see fewer patients in the same amount of time.

    Adding a high-speed 5G network to existing architectures can help quickly and reliably transport huge data files of medical imagery, which can improve both access to care and the quality of care.

    At the Austin Cancer Center, the PET scanner generates extremely large files — up to 1 gigabyte of information per patient per study. “To get that much data from one side of the town to another, you’ve got to have the network performance to handle it,” says Jason Lindgren, CIO of Austin Cancer Center. “We used to have to send the files after hours. Now as soon as the patient leaves the scanner, the study is already on its way. It’s beneficial to doctors because they can get the results that they need quicker.”
