High-Speed Image Gateway Introduced

November 15, 2010 — The new Turbo Gateway is said to deliver images to and from a cloud-based image repository up to 300% faster than existing technologies.

Part of the product suite, Turbo Gateway overcomes the limitations of the DICOM transfer protocol to speed data over a conventional internet connection, while continuing to support a standard interface with all picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) and imaging modalities.

The SeeMyRadiology Turbo Gateway is a compact, easy-to-install software, also available as an appliance, that connects directly to a facility’s local area network (LAN). The device maximizes the utilization of available internet bandwidth and optimizes transmission of imaging data in a cloud computing environment. Taking advantage of a new data handling methodology, the device has shown sustained average speeds of 4.5 computed tomography (CT) images/second and 8 magnetic resonance (MR) images/second in benchmark testing over a 10mbps internet connection.

Based on these metrics, distribution times of studies via a cloud environment will be reduced to less than one minute for a 100MB study. Turbo Gateway ensures a high level of security without the need for VPNs and also provides built-in data validation, uptime monitoring and fault tolerance.

Internet image transfer speed is becoming increasingly important as a growing number of imaging providers rely on cloud-based technology to communicate with staff radiologists in multiple locations, offsite teleradiology providers, referring physicians and outside institutions. Radiology practices need fast, streamlined image communications to compete in today’s challenging healthcare environment.

Rapid, easy-to-enable cloud-based image communication can help many sites eliminate the costly and time-consuming production of imaging CDs and provide valuable real-time image communications for trauma transfers and tertiary referrals, resulting in enhanced patient care.
