Our clinic runs off wireless internet, can we still transmit images?

It’s all about the speed of the connection. You could send xrays fine with a cellular modem as long as you use compression and you have a VERY strong signal. A 2G/3G isn’t enough. The data can get very expensive as well.


There’s also “wireless fiber” “wireless T1” etc which all work differently. Wireless fiber is the fastest and most reliable speed … wireless T1 is a good option for people that have a choice between it and DSL. However, satellite is not a good option when you do a lot of downloads  It’s expensive, it’s slow and the transmission lag will often cause timeouts. Also, when you hit your “cap” on your data you end up being throttled. Same as cellular but the speed can drop to unusable.

It is always better to use a wired connection. This avoids time-outs and interrupted sends. However if you have a good wireless connection it will most likely be fine to use.
